All Viking 130 gearboxes use gear oil and therefore do not have oil hoses, other than for venting due to expansion during operation.
To be continued...
show the max pressure used to get 200 hp at sea-level. It is 1 bar or 14.7 psi or 29.92"
This is pressure above existing sea-level pressure on a standard day.
So to get 170 HP, the engine use 7.5 psi (15") or would indicate 29.92 + 15" = 45" of MAP
The turbo is capable of producing over 60" If one inch is lost / 1000 feet of attitude, 58" are left at 12,000 feet. Only 45 is used for 170 hp"
We use mid grade car fuel, Swift fuel and 100LL.
You can also mix these fuels."

The 150, 170 and 190 are similar engines, all based on the Civic Turbo
There has never been a Viking engine in the RV-7 so far. A Viking 110 is flying in an RV-9A and you can find info on that by searching this forum.
The 2016/17 Honda Civic GDI Viking Turbo engine with a hydraulic constant speed Viking / DUC propeller is the correct engine for the 7.
It is not going to be inexpensive.
The 200 hp intermittent / 150 continuous hp engine is for those wanting to explore what is possible in aviation.
This engine, operated at 12,000 feet, with a variable propeller will outperform any existing RV-7 as far as efficiency.
Long range cross country is possible."
Jan and all of Viking,
I simply can not resist a smile every time I start up the 110! I am always impressed with the start up, smoothness, sound and feel! Can't say enough about it! If there is ever anyone out my way (Denver) that wants to take a look let me know! Anyone out there considering a Viking, stop thinking and jump right in!!
