AeroVee Turbo Progress Updates:

What is the AeroVee Turbo?

The intent of this project is to continue the Sonex tradition of continuous improvement for our products by developing an economical, light-weight, simple, and reliable retrofit turbocharging system for the AeroVee engine.

The obvious benefits are more take-off power available at low altitudes and increased horsepower output at altitudes that we normally operate as sport pilots (0 to 10,000 ft).

The system being tested consists of an exhaust driven turbocharger, an AeroInjector installed in a "pull-through" configuration on the turbocharger, and an engine-driven scavenge pump to provide oil to the turbocharger. The total Turbocharged AeroVee engine system (with Nikasil Cylinders) weighs 185 lbs in this prototype configuration.
