While researching engines for the Cobra, we ran across a couple of articles about engines built by IMM Engines down in Indio, CA.
After a few discussions with them over the phone, we decided to take a quick trip down there and see their shop. My dad and I flew my RV-7 down this morning and Brian Hafliger picked us up and the airport and took us back to his shop. He spent plenty of time with us discussing the various options for our engine and showing us all of the tooling in the shop. Afterward, he dropped us off at a local Mexican restaurant and then picked us up again later to give us a ride back to the airport. I don’t know if we will have them build our engine, but we certainly learned a lot and I’m now more confident than ever about the engine choices we’re making.
