Will an Enya .50 CX fit in the Tiger 2?

Sure. I flew my Tiger with an Enya 45SS (ringed). It was overpowered if anything. The 50CX might be more than you want. The Tiger might not stay still on a paved runway at idle, and it may not slow down for a stall landing - you may need to fly it onto the ground. But yes, it will fit.

I have an Enya 50CX on a Mojo. It is a sweet, powerful engine. BTW, mine does not run well with the Enya quiet muffler. Their standard muffler works well with it.

Is the 45CX the same size as the 50CX?

Are you talking about the M402X standard muffler, of the M501CX muffler?

I would think so, but don't know for sure. I do know the .45CX will kick a lot of OS engines to the curb AND last longer! That ought to start a pissing contest for sure

I don't know the part number. There is no part number on it. It looks just like the standard muffler that comes with the 50CX but it has an extra section between the two castings. The extra part is about 1/8 inch wide and is shiny aluminum - i.e. machined, not cast.

I could not get a good transition from mid throttle to full throttle with the special muffler. After several hours of attempting to adjust the needles I went back to the standard muffler and the transition was OK.

I found that the baffle plate with the hole in it robbed about 800 rpms on a couple of different props on two different engines, a 45SS and a 45CX. It reduced the noise some, but not nearly enough to make up for the huge loss in power.

The new larger volume muffler (that will take the baffle) and the old smaller one gave about the same rpms, but I don't think the new one is very noticeably quieter. It is about a 1/2 oz heavier.
