Didn't buy one. It's the father in laws that we repowered last summer. Been looking at some that keep popping up though. ET? you mean enertia? He had choppers on before when he had the triple 2.5s. It was extremely loud, smoky and got about 1mpg average, but it would do a little over 70. Now he is going for cruise economy. He ordered the Bravo 1s and the four blades will probably allow us to raise the engines a bolthole and see what that does.
