Float kit and engine upgrade for C182

Float kit and engine upgrade for C182

I have bought a 1964 C182 with a timed out engine.  I'd like to add Seaplanes West float kit

http://www.seaplaneswest.com/floats.html

and also bump up the the engine preformance.

What are all the optional engine upgrades / stcs that are available for the 182 and what are the basic pros and cons of each?

I know of the P. Ponk 260hp upgrade, 2000tbo.  What others are available?

Re: Float kit and engine upgrade for C182

Thanks for the tip.  I like the Skyways upgrade much better than P.Plonk.  More HP, and more TBO and they really seem on the ball there.

Jack spent a good 40 minutes on the phone with me discussing all the options etc.

I am disappointed that I can't use my current prop.  Having to buy a new three Blade adds another $9000 on to the price tag.
