    Take a 4 cyclinder Lycoming like an 0-360 and compare it to the Continental 6 cylinder 360. Which is less expensive to rebuild. I would think the 4 cylinder since fewer parts. Someone is trying to tell me the Conti is less?

    What about if they both have 6 cyclinders? Is one more or less than the other?

    Pretty sure several O-360 4 bangers don't have counterweighted crankshafts, that would save even more money over a Conti IO360.

    Beware, Continental never offered an O-360, they are all injected IO360 or turbo injected TSIO360.
