Maxwell Propulsion Upgrades Its Four-Cylinder Options

Thanks to a stroke increase bumping the four-cylinder, single-overhead-cam Subaru engine's displacement to 2.6 liters, the current iteration of the Maxwell Propulsion firewall-forward package now produces 205 horsepower. For essentially the same weight as the previous, 165-hp setup, the new "stroker" engine should improve performance of the Glastar Sportsman airframe that is the company's development mule. The basic engine package including electronic control units, prop-speed reduction drive and major accessories starts at $27,000.
