Aero Sport Power introduces the new 200 plus-horsepower, 382-Wildcat engine

Rob Wharf, Owner/President and Todd Collins, Owner/CEO/CFO of Aero Sport Power Ltd., are excited to introduce the new 200 PLUS-horsepower, 382-WILDCAT Engine.

“Delivering over 200-horsepower on the dyno, the new 382-WILDCAT engine fills a much needed gap in this segment of the homebuilt engine market,” Wharf said. “It's what builders have been asking for and now we're very excited to introduce this exceptional new engine to our global customer base.”

Collins explained that the 382-WILDCAT engine brings a number of advancements to this segment of the market. In particular, he said that Aero Sport Power has partnered with Superior Air Part's engineering team to fine-tuned the 382-WILDCAT's bore and stroke to optimize the engine's performance across the entire power range.

Scott Hayes, V.P. Sales and Marketing for Superior Air Parts, Inc. explained. “The 382 also has a new damped counter-weighted crankshaft that enables builders to optimize the engine's performance when using a lighter-weight propeller. That means they get the benefits of greater performance, while having the same overall weight and balance location of a less powerful engine.”

In addition to the new damped crankshaft, the 382-WILDCAT, offers builders a number of other design and manufacturing benefits including a number of Superior's XP-Engine components:

• Superior's Balanced Oil Crankcase for better overall lubrication of the camshaft and crankshaft

• Superior's Proprietary Electro Slag Remelt (ESR) Crankshaft – stronger base metal means a stronger crankshaft

• Superior's High-Flow Sump delivers more air to all four cylinders

• Superior's Millennium Cylindersâ, delivering advanced cylinder design and performance

• Superior's Computer Optimized Camshafts enable smoother engine operation and lower valve-train loads

• Superior's Thrust Surface Pressure Lubrication means all thrust surfaces receive consistent oil flow for reduced friction and wear

• Superior's Precision Machined Connecting Rods enable more consistent weight and balance of critical components.

“Aero Sport Power has been a pioneer of the “stroker engine” technology for years and have built hundreds of these types of engines,” Collins said. “Our engine builders also have more combined experience with the stroker-type engine than any other engine shop.”

“By the way it sounds you can tell that the Aero Sport Power 382-WILDCAT is a new breed of engine,” Wharf said. “We've built three 382-WILDCATs for customers so far, and they have purred during their test runs.”
