I have a Jabiru 3300 in the 701. Speaking only about the 3300, I found that the 120 hp it has is virtually vibration free and so quiet I can sit in the cockpit and have a normal conversation without headsets. It starts in less than one rotation in most cases, especially when warm. It was easy to install and wire. The machining on it is outstanding. Consumes 4.5 to 5.0 gph - car gas. When I bought it last year as a firewall forward kit it was $10K less than the Rotax.
Again, nothing against the Rotax - only my current experience with the Jabiru.

Rich, I just looked at the UL Power website for the first time, even though I keep hearing about these engines. It looks very nice.
The FADEC is highly desirable. Fuel injected? Wow!
Do you know what type ignition is utilizes? Electronic ignition modules like the Rotax?
Zane wrote:Rich, I was doing some research into this shortly after you originally posted, and found some pics on the Just forums of a fellow who had modified his cowling to fit the ULPower 350i. It required some pretty severe blisters, which in my opinion are a little over the top. Are you going this route? Is there any word from the Just factory guys on making a more smooth cowl to fit larger engines?
