General Magazine Reviews on the Power Flow Tuned Exhaust
“…Power Flow systems offer among the best bang for buck of any mods we’ve reviewed.” – The Aviation Consumer – Feb. 2009
“There’s very little available on the aftermarket these days providing the same return rate on investment.” – The Aviation Consumer – Feb. 2009
“…we are convinced they have a well engineered product and they have made reasonable performance claims.” – Light Plane Maintenance – Sept. 2008

“I’m not a test pilot but… even I could tell there was a difference. It was that obvious.” Flying Magazine, August 1999
"Although it’s not free, Power Flow has created the closest thing to free horsepower that we’ve seen.” AOPA Pilot, January 2000
“A rate-of-climb increase of about 20 percent is remarkable – not to mention the safety factor increase when leaving high-altitude airports or climbing through cloud layers.” Private Pilot Magazine, December 2000 (click to read)
“…boosts the Lycoming O-320’s output by at least 20HP, while simultaneously reducing fuel flow and lowering CHT’s. Geez, what a deal.” The Aviation Consumer, May 1999
“At the conclusion of the flights, there was no questions that the PFS had improved both climb and cruise performance.” Plane & Pilot,December 2006. (M20 200hp)
“Upon opening the large boxes, I was immediately impressed.” Cessna Owner Magazine, September 2002.
“This is a quantum leap in climb performance.” Cessna Pilots Association Magazine, August 1999
“In the aircraft industry, you see many “mods” claiming incredible changes to performance. It is refreshing to see one that actually lives up to its performance claims.” Cessna Owner Magazine, September 2002.
“The engine gets a more complete fuel burn. The effect in the cockpit is that it will take less throttle to get the same RPM” Aircraft Maintenance Technology Magazine, March 2005
Customer Reviews on the Power Flow C-177 Tuned Exhaust System:
"Before and After Tests . All tests done about the same outside temps at the same airport. Take off roll was about 4 seconds shorter Climb rate now over 1100 fpm vs 925 fpm Cruise up easily by 7 knots (and my round trip to Boston yesterday proved it). Fuel consumption reduced by 1.6 gph ( JP fuel flow monitoring) Power level is noticeable and there is only a slight increase in exhaust pipe noise Very, Very, Very satisfied as I feel I now have 200hp performance on a mid-time O-360 180hp motor !!" Paul Valois - C177B (O-360) South Burlington , VT
"WOW! The rate of climb was much improved. The exhaust note changed. It now sounds like the HOT ROD that it is."
William Butler - Mundelein, IL C-177A (O-360)
"Better climb 150-180fpm increase." Oliver Crinkelmeyer - Austin, TX C-177B (O-360)
Sounds different, better acceleration and climb. I saw an average of 100-150 FPM improvement in climb. Alan Valenti - Bend, OR C-177B (O-360)
Appearance is GOOD. IT IS A DIFFERENT PLANE!
James Kellum - Pinson, AL C-177A (O-360)
I love it a "10", I thought the excelleration was greatly improved. After several hours of flying I have noticed about a 150 FPM increase in climb performance and about a 100 RPM increase above redline at full throttle! I live in Georgia and it is hot and humid. So, to get an increase of 150 FPM on a 90 degree day is GREAT. I can't wait to see the difference when it starts to cool off down here. Glenn Sikes - Hoschton, GA C-177 (O360)
