What are the options for increasing the power of a 912iS? Can Edge Performance convert it? Is there somewhere in the USA it can be done? What’s the power increase, cost, and potential downsides? Any negative of doing it on an engine that already has 500+ hours?

    It’s not something I would do, but this video from Edge shows the HP increase on the 912iS with their big bore kit.

    If you do this there is a good chance you'll be tossing thousands of dollars and maybe and engine down the drain. You maybe drastically shortening the engine life. 

    Why a d on what do you need more power for? Why not just get a 915?

    I have a Sting S4 with a 912IS....love the plane and love the engine..

     

    But of course more performance is always better. I have found that saving a bit of weight really helps...

    1) Do I really need to take all that gear on each flight...pack for the day only

     

    2) Do I need that much fuel ? and hour is usually enough margin, do I need to fill the tanks each time.

     

    3) The hard one...I lost 10 kg myself....and suddenly my plane flies better !!

     

    all of these have to be worth at least 5-8 Hp !
