    Hello all!

    I just got the PPonk 470-50 in my Cessna 182R. I also got an Insight E2 monitor. During flight I have noticed that cylinder 6 is running a lot colder than the rest. During climb out 3 & 4 have gone into the yellow(420*) during a 1000fpm climb to 6000' from 580'. I have to reduce the angle to 500fpm to cool them down.

    The #6 never seems to warm into the 300's and holds around 280 deg. The EGT is 1100 where the others are from 1300 to 1400. I realize the #6 is one of the front cylinders getting the cold air but there is a guard to restrict a free flow of air.

    Is this temp okay? I was hoping for warmer temps to properly seat the rings as this rebuild is only 50 or so hours in.

    You might consider swapping the sensors on that cylinder just to make sure the problem doesn't move.
