FAA approved STC engine conversion
kit replaces the existing 285 or 300 HP Continental (TCM) IO-520 engine and installs
the more powerful and robust Lycoming TIO-540-J2BD 350HP Turbocharged engine
in the Cessna 206 series
aircraft. The Lycoming engine has obtained worldwide recognition and respect for its
ruggedness and reliability in the Piper Navajo Chieftain. Coupled to
this powerful engine is our huge, custom three-bladed Hartzell Compact 80 inch
propeller. With this combination, the performance increase is phenomenal!
We call the modified
aircraft the SUPER TURBO 350HP.
All control of the turbocharging is fully automatic and
is oil pressure servo controlled by the density controller and wastegate.
This eliminates any addition workload for the pilot during all phases of
flight. This allows for a set-it and forget-it approach to engine
Our conversion is applicable to all
TCM powered model U206 and P206 aircraft.
The modification is available as a complete packaged kit shipped to the installation shop of your choice.
As an OEM Modifier, we can also supply you with a brand new factory
engine at a great price. Due to the wide source and quality of
overhauled engines available, we allow you the choice of picking your engine supplier.
