UL520T

  • 122 kg
  • 220 hp
  • Contact us

The UL520T is based on the well proven  UL520 but now with a turbo charger / normalizer
The main goal of this turbo is not to create a big boost in HP but  rather to compensate for the loss of atmospheric density during all phases of flight,  and thus eliminating the loss of power  seen with elevated altitudes. The UL520T maintains its 220HP from sea level up to 15000 ft.
An ASTM compliant version (with dual ECU) is available as well.

  • 4 stroke, 6 cylinder, horizontally opposed
  • Dual (redundant) electronic spark ignition (variable timing)
  • Electronic multipoint fuel injection (pressure and temperature compensated)
  • Electronic RPM limiter
  • Electronic overboost limiter
  • Direct propeller drive
  • 7 bearing crankshaft with surface hardening treatment and additional large thrust bearing (ball bearing type)
  • Single central camshaft
  • Push rods, tappets and OHV (hydraulic compensators have not been used)
  • Wet sump forced lubrication with integrated pressure regulator
  • Ram air cooled cylinders and cylinder heads
  • Integrated permanent magnet AC generator, external rectifier-regulator
  • Factory installed exhaust system with integrated turbo charger and waste gate.
  • Turbocharger with ceramic ball bearings
  • Electric starter
  • Electric fuel pump and pressure regulator to eliminate vapor lock and facilitate starting even under adverse conditions

Power / Torque curve

The power and torque curve of the engine has been established by repeated dyno tests, which were performed at sea level and in weather conditions close to the ISA standard. The following graph shows the real, available power and torque coming from the crankshaft of the UL520T engine corrected to the International Standard Atmosphere conditions at sea level.

Power vs Density Altitude

The following graph shows the calculated available power of the UL520T engine at 2700 RPM setting, WOT (wide open throttle) and varying density altitude.
