Hello! This is going to be fun... 1939 J3 Experimental 160HP

Hey guys! Just saying HI. I have a Clipped wing 1939 J3 Cub that was converted to experimental with a 160HP o-320. It was mostly setup for aero, but I'm not going to be doing that kind of flying. Basic stuff, but with a lot of HP apparently. =) I'm going to have lots of questions, (Yes I'll use the search) but right now I'm really diving into the W/B of the plane with this larger engine on the front. I have dual wing tanks and want to remove the front tank add a header tank behind the back seat. Duno what that's going to look like for where the pilot sits. Lets just say, it's complicated!
Hope to see you guys around. If you want to follow what I do, you can check it out on youtube as well. youtube.com/flywiththeguys
