PPONK Upgrade for 182

Recommended Posts

My plane is a '57 182A with a Horton Stol Kit. With the original 0-470, I get from 600 msl to 10000 msl in about 25 minutes and we burn about 8 gallons per load. When I'm cruising at 23 squared I indicate about 120kts and I'm burning about 11gph.

I just sent it in for the 280hp pponk upgrade. Can anyone who's had this done give me an idea what I can expect for cruise and climb performance and fuel burn when it comes back?

We own Cessna 182 J wide body with PPonk IO-520, 300 HP, ART extension wings, our field was 1000 msl and we jumped at 11500 Msl, always 5 jumpers on board, 21-23 min. 65 liters per hour avg 13 jumps per hour with first class pilot, 11 jumps per hour with conservative pilot.
With our regular O-470, average was 7 jumps per hour for 50 liters/hr.
Burn more per hour but less per jump
