  1. whoa! that’s a nice one! thanks for the heads up!
  2. my email is jsigmon24@mac.com cell 970-367-6140. thanks jeff
  3. Im ready to drop $ on an encore, when one comes on the market..
  4. Quite frankly an -LB with an intercooler and merlyn wastegate, it’s splitting hairs. Sure I get the cowling difference etc, but I’ve seldom seen 252’s on the market that haven’t had top overhauls or cylinders exchanged during their life.
  5. Exactly, It'll goose on up to 14-15K but its pretty anemic. Most of my trips for business are westbound from colorado. Most of the low IFR routes I fly have MEA between 13-15K
  6. Ha! But that's kind of what i experienced in and out of Taos in my ovation. It was fine and doeable, but i did have to obviously pick my times.
  7. Yes! That confirms everything I've understood and why once taking the plunge on turbo i'm heavily leaning to just going all in on the big bore lycoming. It appears that unless I just get an abused engine or bad luck, Ill just have to prepare to stay on top of exhaust and accessories for that engine
  8. Thank you. That's what I figured. In and out of Taos was never impressive in my ovation, but not alot of terrain issues getting in and out of the area. Ill operate out of 20V and SBS so your report is what I figured was the case. I shall press on in my search. Cheers
  9. Previous Ovation owner and flew routinely into Santa FE and Taso, NM. Now based in Colorado and home airport 7,400 MSL. Anyone have thoughts on routine operations from a home field at high elevation airport in Ovation? Im in the market for another Ovation or Bravo. Is it going to be worth the added fuel and maintenance and outrageous Overhaul costs in the case of bad luck with making TBO for a big bore turbocharged lycoming? My flights never involve more than one passenger.
  10. Sold my ovation last fall and have moved to steamboat springs. Please let me know if anyone has contacts with future seller of 252. Rationally priced and maintained in the right way and i’ll buy it. I will need turbocharged out of new home airport 20V jason
