ENGINE OVERHAUL IN THE NEAR FUTURE?
Our engine program may be your answer! We’ve had an IO550 engine core with a fine first-run Cirrus heritage recently rebuilt--and it’s ready to be installed! The engine was rebuilt by Zephyr Aircraft Engines, a top-tier engine shop with quality workmanship and parts. The installation and fine-tuning (to Jim Barker’s high standards) will be performed by Aviation Resources’ team of highly-skilled mechanics. In addition, you don’t have to be the test pilot! Your aircraft will be flown for a 10-hour break-in period by a platinum CSIP and Jim—oil and fuel provided. All the necessary adjustments will be made to make your aircraft purr—all before you pick it up or have it delivered. We will ensure it works—NO DRAMA!
While you’re at it, you may want to consider the following options as well:

I hope to not need this for several more years, but when I do, this is the way I'm going!
This is an awesome option!! I too hope I don't need it!
Two weeks ago we filled the engine case with 5 gallons of oil.
Why? Preservative. Let's keep the camshaft and lifters from corroding.
what about other items?
the engine is painted, the fuel line support clips are painted...
Christmas is coming soon and this engine is a great gift for your bird!
I don't remember; does this deal come with 10 hours of Barker-supervised professional break-in?
Yes it does....
and the Donaldson tour...
A satisfactory core is required. Engine case and crankshaft must pass inspection. NO cracks allowed.
Is there any thoughts on offering IO-360-ES?
