Re: Turbonormalized Baron

The main differences between the Merlyn turbonormalizer and the TAT is no intercooler. No detonation, either, even at FL200 or Phoenix in September when OAT on ground was 110+. Manufacturer tested under the most adverse conditions for FAA detonation survey, and says the design of his system eliminates the need for intercooler at FL230 and below. So far, I agree.

Other goodies:
Gross weight increase to 5,700 lbs.
Single engine ceiling increase to 16,000'.
No change in cowling or nacelle mold lines.
Sea level manifold pressure to 23,000'.
220KTAS cruise.
