Gross Weight Increase STC

Gross Weight Increase STC

Is anyone familiar with the 100 lb gross weight increase for the C-172N model available from Powerflow Systems?  I was on their web site researching the exhaust system upgrade, and saw that they also have a gross weight increse STC, no exhaust system upgrade required.  Their advertized price is $300, but I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has done it.  I would like to know what the real cost is on an unmodified 1978 C-172.  The $3500 for the exhaust system is out of reach right now, but the 100 extra pounds would let me travel with my wife and both my adult children (considering density altitude and runway length, of course).

Most likely the STC requires having 6.0x600 main tires and reducing flap travel to 30 degrees. Other places sell the paperwork for less than $300.00, more like $100.00.

Ok, what 'other places'.  I've looked, but not found any for less than $300. (Found one for $795).  Don

Re: Gross Weight Increase STC

I would be interested to know what other places? I have a 182-F that I dropped a Texas Skyways 0-520 engine and I would like to increase my gross weight to maximise the use of the additional power.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Steve Collins 770 393-3937

I dont know of any Steve.  Actually I just figured that you would get an increase in gross weight with the Texas Skyway conversion.
