IO470 To IO520 Engine Conversion STC

IO470 To IO520 STC

STC SA02363CH $1995 (Single STC)

STC SA02262CH $2495 (Twin Engine)

Description:

Allows installation of IO520 cylinders on your IO470 engine.

 

This STC conversion applies to:

 

Bonanza:

  • J35 through P35, G33

Baron:

  • 55 through B55

Cessna:

  • C-310C through C310Q.

Modifications for Conversion:

  • 470 case is bored to accept the larger diameter IO520 cylinders and oil nozzles if not already installed

  • 520 cylinders of your choice are installed

  • 520 counterweights are installed on the existing 470 crankshaft

  • Fuel injection divider at the top of the engine is replaced with the 520 version

  • Fuel controller is set up for the 520 fuel flows

  • New cam shaft gear will be in compliance should this become an AD

  • 520 inter cylinder baffles replace the 470 versions (4 small sheet metal parts)

  • Same propeller is retained

  • Engine data plate is replaced per the STC

  • TBO becomes 1700 hrs

 

Bottom Line:

This is the most economical performance increase to your IO470. It makes a lot of sense to do this when overhauling an IO470, increasing the displacement by installing larger cylinders.

Increases TBO to 1700 hours.

 

Gain IO520 performance at wide open throttle settings
