I use the IO-360M1A & B 180hp Lycoming engine. It uses the same sump as the 200hp model but has the lighter parallel cylinders but still is 360 cu in. The M1B puts out close to 190 hp because of the cold air induction sump and is 30lbs lighter than the IO-360A1A 200hp. The M1B is a new certified engine from Lycoming in 2002 and comes under new FAA rules that state that the engine has to put out 5% greater hp than published so it can maintain the rated hp thru it’s 2000 hr TBO. So it’s published hp is 180 but on the dyno it shows about 190hp. This is the best power to weight ratio on the market.

Also the M1B fits the C-170B cowl better than the larger angle valve cylinders. The M1B is lighter, burns over 1.0 gph less and has about 10 plus more hp than the O-360A1A 180hp Lycoming engine and no carb ice.
