  •  Aviation Specific 13B/20B Mazda Front Side Housing


    I am in contact with a person with the design and manufacturing capability to produce an Aviation Specific 13B/20B Mazda Front Side Housing machined from 7075-T6 with mount points that would allow these engines

    to be a bolt in to the engine mount ring (30 degree number 1 Dyna) as used by the "Vans" RV-10 and other aircraft that use the Lycoming O/IO 540 engine..........This side plate is in the preliminary design stage and at this

    point I am a go between to see if there would be any interest in this product if and when it is
    produced...........I personally am interested this side plate........As we on this forum know both the 13B / 20B are capable of truly

    amazing power levels both naturally aspirated and turbo boosted.........The 20B would make the Van's RV-10 , Glasair 3 or Lancair's that use the Lycoming O/IO 540 an easy 300+ hp almost bolt in engine...........

    The "Reno" Sport Class "Glasairs" and Lancairs" are producing almost 400 mph speeds using dual turbo Lycoming IO-550 engines that are virtual hand grenades pulling over 700 hp...........There are turbo 20B's pulling

    1200 hp out in the auto racing world with good reliability..........A 20B boosted to 700+ hp is not even breathing hard.........IMHO

    Would like to hear what interest there may be in this product if and when it may be produced............Or any comments pro or con..............

    It would be a very good idea to incorporate the replacable cast iron inserts, like the Aussies. Maybe one of the sellers would sell you just the plates. I know that MazdaTrix is selling those types of billet end plates.
