This KingTech K-180G is new-in-box with zero time. It's the G model with a Xicoy ECU, kero start, with start and fuel valves built into the case. Same engine specs and performance as the G2, but with a different ECU. It was bolted into a jet, but removed and put back in the original box when plans changed...having never been started.
Optional accessories included in this sale: - 2100mAh LiFe ECU battery ($72) - FOD screen ($30) - NIB Pilot 240ml air trap ($95)
The G2 version sells for $2690 without any of the accessories included in this sale - but the engine is currently backordered.
From the manufacturer: KingTech G series, a true Fuel Start turbine, will start and run on Diesel, Kerosene and Jet-A. G series have both solenoid valves built into the front cover, with a single fuel feed that eliminates at least 8 fuel connections upstream to the turbine, making a clean engine install a very simple task.
