Well, as many of you might recall, I got to visit Tornado Alley Turbo (TAT) several weeks ago and I also got the chance to check out some lucky feller's (or gal's) Baron 58 that is being TATified with a couple turbonormalized IO-550s.
:rock:

According to George Braly of TAT, the TN Baron 58 should be able to do 235 KTAS, although for the life of me I can't recall the fuel flow rate.

It is very close to being done and, again according to George, it should be flying very soon. As has been reported here at BeechTalk previously, there will be small bumps on the underside of the nacelle to accommodate the plumbing and components, namely the two small intercoolers.

The nacelle is reshaped to include a small bump and the oil pan is contoured so all the ducting is more closely nested with the engine. The exhaust system is also completely reworked.

. . .



So, can someone tell me how fast a normally aspirated 58 Baron is down low, at say 2500 feet and 2500 RPM and 17 gph on each side ? Warm day / hot day ?

Regards, George

Oooh... I hope you are right.

At 2500 feet, today, I set the TAS window - - so that +20dC pointed at 2-3,000 feet.

At 30" x 2500 x 17 gph and about 60 LOP, the airspeed needle walked around past 195KTAS and was still accelerating out of the TAS "window" when I decided to change power settings. The hottest CHT on the left engine was under 380dF, and stable.

This could be interesting !

George

215 at 10,000.

225 at 15,000 feet

230+ at FL200.

Just my guess.

Nice, thanks Jeff. :thumbup:

You're sure that scoop wont melt with all the heat from the Turbos ? :eek:

2500 feet and 2500 RPM and 17 gph on each side should give you 190 kts+.

I will say 235 kts @ 20k
