I dont think there is much happening involving an XL 2.We are a bit unfortunate at this stage.Continental were very supportive of our engine when they introduced the IOF 240 engine,now the goal post has changed.From what I have been hearing it may be related with the sale of Continental Aero to an outside investor.
