Is there anyone here with experience regarding these engines? I have one for my 91" EF Extra.
I have an EME 60 in my 91" EF Extra. With a WrongWayRc tuned pipe and a Vess 24b prop. Awesome engine! It has the stock ring in it and is pretty stout.

I have read eme doesn't really need the bowmans. I have a stock 120 and its running great.

No, not really. The stock rings are fine. I didnt even check the ring gap in my stock ones. I just decided to stuff some Bowmans in it from the get go.

That's good to hear guys. I also hear that the EME 60cc is within 5% power range with the DA 60. I guess I'll find out soon enough!

yep I have a EME 60,broke in a new engine with a FB ring rite from the start.and I don't get any more rpm than the guys with the stock ring.only thing you will gain is better compression,smoother running engine and less heat due to the less friction from the ring on the cylinder wall.one of the better china engines.no rod bearing issues yet but I am only on my second year of flying it.i also run the snot out of it, always in the 7300+ rpm range.and it's smoother than the DA.

I also have a 60, but with ZERO time on it. Gonna start with a 24x8 Falcon CF. I'm not even gonna "Bowmanize" it. Hoping it will pull a OMP Yak SP55M around like a rag doll. The engine is mine, and the airplane belongs to a friend of mine.

Post the results here when you find out. So far this engine sounds promising!

mine got just over 6700 with a Falcon 24-9 stock muffler.the 24-8 should be a better choice.i thought the engine sounded over prop on the 24-9 but others like it.i like the more rpm's so I haven't found a prop that moves the plane around like the 23-8 laminate and the 23-8 beechwood xoars.
now on a pipe the 24-9 I think would be a good choice.i tried a few different pipes and god only knows how many different header length,just didn't care for the pipes.

So far my 120 is doing well. Very good power and extremely smooth with no rattles. I only have about three to four gallons through it though.

Before they became as well known as they are now, I was sent a 60 and a 120 to test and evaluate by a buddy of mine.

Those reporting power levels within a couple of percent of the DA 60 and 120 are spot on - especially in the Mid Range torque. (This was tested ona real dyno - not just Prop RPM).
The items contained withinthe crankcase and cylinder fins are as good as or better than anything from China, The bores are surprisingly close to round and parallel (Hence the low level of performance improvement noted by adding a different ring - however the softer Bowman ring may give a longer bore life), The coating is also very even (Ultrasonically measured). The ones I had both had Genuine Walbro's and the better of the common reed assemblies. The internals of the crankcase were as clean as the cleanest I have seen from China.

Time seems to be showing that they are generally holding up well.

No - I didn't keep the engines - I sent them back to my buddy who is happily flying them - I tell him they are good because I touched them :leaving:

I have a 60 and a 120 the 60 I had to send in after 3 months of use baring went out ... Loved it when it ran ... And my 120 is also running very well....

My 120 is going good with Bowmans. Just waiting for it to grenade, then I'll put a real engine on my OMP 330SC. A nice used 3W 106 on the tuned pipes that are installed in the airplane. :)

Anyone had trouble with starting their 60 EME? I have to shoot gas to the carb in order to start it. Once its running it runs fine. Can I use a fuel primer bulb?
