Found this on the Gallatin ramp parked by my plane when I went to get data tag pics for the FAA.

Looks intriguing...

It's a Peterson 182 conversion.

In the late 60s it was a Wren 460. Had wing mods also. http://wren460.com/

As Paul said, now it is Peterson, I didn't know that someone was still making it.

I believe it was called the Katmai Conversion. Take off and landings are remably short due to how much these lower the stall speed.

That one looks pre- Katmai. It’s a Peterson 260SE if memory serves. Again, from memory - the Wren has a bunch of complicated stuff (flaps, spoilers, canard, etc) but when push came to shove the performance enhancements were largely around the canard and what is essentially (or perhaps literally) a Horton STOL kit plus an IO-470 at 260hp (vs the stock carb’d model). Some speed mods too around the gear. More recently, the King Katmai has been the thing - wing extensions, big wheels and tires, IO-550. And most recently a non-backcountry version. We used to have a 182 and thought about the original 260SE mod a bunch - well controlled at 35kts with a very flat deck angle, and would cruise over 150ktas on the same fuel as the original engine. But they’re expensive. And the stock 182 is actually quite good for STOL.

The Peterson website used to have a lot of info, as well as a YouTube channel.
