    Your best bet might be to checkout Sonexbuilders.net The very first AV turbos had some issues, but I’d like to think they’ve been resolved. But I don’t know for sure.

    Thanks for the notes, folks. Guess I got spoiled with the flurry of changes several years ago. I understand the pandemic impact ($$$) but still thought progress would continue. Sigh.

    Craig, these are straight forward Slick 43xx mags. Speaking with the mag shop (Aircraft Ignition Services in Honey Grove) the opinion is that I screwed up installing them. I’ll pull and retime them.
