1. vortex generators - easy to instal - and seem to work OK. Sometimes one of the vanes falls off - but they give you quite a few spares and it´s easy to see where to stick them back on with twin component adhesive.

2. BASIC alternator. The best thing ever invented for a Cub. More than enough power; trouble free. Have had it for years.

3. Airwolf oil filter. VERY difficult to find the right place for installation - and then to fit. But worth the effort as I can now analyze the oil residue once in a while.

4. REIFF pre-heat system (sump & cylinder necks). Couldn´t fly in winter here without.


1. Gascolator - as I´m a bit aprehensive about the traditional glass sump coming off in flight.
2. a new and better carb.
