Congratulations on splashing it!
So much work and time involved in just the conversion, let alone the electronics and layout and steering...

You will see performance and MPGs improvement as you get more hours on it.

Trimming and tabs will affect performance also. I find it more sensitive than as an I/O.

Haha thanks man! Commissioned the autopilot and finished the break in today. Loving the upgrades. Here are some fuel and speed numbers at 4600rpm.

Any update on how the Suzuki 350dp is running? I plan on pulling the trigger on one in a few months possibly.

It’s running well. I had a warranty claim with Suzuki after only 35 hours due to a snapped prop though. The prop was sent out for X-rays and bubbles/bad metal were found in the casting so they replaced it relatively quick.
