  1. Your probably aware of this already but EDM’s take a lot of install. I was quoted 35-45 hours for my EDM-900 that I ended up installing myself (I’m an A&P). I bought it on sale new for $3300 if I remember right. So there is a lot of work that goes into some of these items to install.
  2. Gents, I might be missing this somewhere but is a cabin speaker required? Thanks
  3. This may help or not but I went down the path for a buzz or static and it was expensive and painful but short answer was SPARK PLUGS! I had the champions and went to tempest and it was clear as bell. now long story, I narrowed it down the right mag and swap plugs and it was still there. Replaced the capacitor and it was still there. Remove antennas and check the grounding plain and reinstalled them. Then changed to new antennas and at the same time new RG cable. Then in the middle of all that, I reran the p leads. I also installed a filter because as mention above found that #2 was staticky or buzzy and I had really had radio even close in on some of the towers. Check the wires and nothing looked bad. We after 50 hours from my last annual I check the plugs and they showed signs of wearing out and since I can’t just change a couple and have mismatch, I changed all 8 to tempest massive’s and the problem was gone. like I said, might not help and I had a bigger budget to work with but stupid plugs was my issue and I could have check the resistance at the start but I didn’t because the problem came up after 100ish on the new plugs and wires.
  4. Are you able to confirm that the NGT-9000 will talk with the HDX?
  5. It is my airplane so my ocd was high. This was for a complete remove off all the old gauges and blanking them off. Closing the holes on the firewall and the calibrating the fuel tanks as well. sometime went into the proper hose runs and placement so it was clean looking and reduced the amount of fittings and such. In your case, they can rerun all the same wires in the same locations as long as the first install was good and reduce the time a bit. If you can find an A&P to do it, it will probably be at least half the rate of a shop and work with him and learn some more about your airplane. you can go get online and read the JPi900 install manual if you are curious what goes all i to it.
  6. That price is crazy and I would not pay anybody that much I paid $3800 for my 900 and it took me (I am an A&P) 40 hours for a new install. The 900 will come with all new sensors which I would use. The additional cost are for new fuel hoses for the oil and fuel system components. I would do the install and have an IA that signed mine off if you wanted to bring the plane to AZ.
  7. Awesome thanks! It would be pretty nice to have a cleaner dash
  8. Welcome! So the one thing that I need some clarity on in your post is the AP certification. Are you saying the Dynon is on the same track for AP certification for Mooney M20 aircraft? I understand that trutrak just realized that they didn’t add the other models to their submission to the FAA outside the E model and this will be another delay. What is the specifics on the Mooney installation?
  9. Here it is. I got it from Mooney directly because I was in the same boat as you. Non of the wiring harness number matched and there are slight differences. Since I paid for the all the lot of manuals when I got my airplane, there was a blurb in there that not all model electrical diagrams are included and that I would need to contact Mooney to get the one specific for my airplane. cheers. sci-800269l-0.pdf
  10. I have also been emailed by the guy named Max at blackbird. Haven’t really talked to him yet but I put a lot of time into my airplane and wouldn’t feel good turning it into a rental because you know. Nothing out performs a rental!
  11. Ken, I live in central Phoenix and have my airplane at gateway. If you need anything let me know. jeremy.
  12. Nice!, I am looking to do the same thing with the PS intercomm/comm
