I’m sure there will be much discussion on the turbo section of the forum about this so I will start with an apology for not being a “full” member!
We’ve finally decided that we want to go down the Cirrus route - probably a G2 GTS - possibly a turbo but I’ve only read one written piece about the turbo versus the normally aspirated which seemed to indicate that the turbo was primarily for use in the upper airways - high teens / lower 20’s and some other posts on the guests section about NA v turbo on here.
Is the 17.5gph of the turbo LOP? Do the turbo and NA perform similarly under say 12k fuel flow etc.? The article I read said that the turbo was flown ROP and therefore following on from that, is the range of the turbo similar to the NA? What about TBO - presumably with the higher operating temperatures, the TBO on the turbo is lower than the NA?
Finally, for you UK owners, can anyone recommend finance options (I’m talking on a G2)?
