Thread: Which new cylinders to buy??

  1. #1

    Big Grin Which new cylinders to buy??

    Looking to replace cylinders in my O320 E2D.
    Planning on 9:1 compression pistions.

    Lycoming? Superior? or Continental?

    What would you buy and why?

    The shop I used for my -540 wouldn't use ECI/Titan/Continental. They had no preference between Superior/Lycoming. I chose Lycoming because I've had good experience with their product.

    Thanks Kyle! That's the kind of experience I'm looking to hear.

    FWIW, I left the decision up to my shop (Barrett Precision Engine) on my rebuild and they chose Lycoming.
