I am still torn on any kind of supplemental oil systems for my RV-14, due to reports of limited space to mount anything. I didn't see pictures on your build log of the Half Raven or oil accumulator. Do you have any pictures or a hint at how you mounted that stuff on your RV-14A? I'd like to put in a Half Raven but I don't know if it will require drilling the IO-390 sump or moving the battery off the firewall or anything like that.
Here are some pictures of my install. The blue oil accumulator (Accusump) has since been removed (tried it's useless from an aerobatic standpoint).

Thank you very much for posting those pictures. It looks like a tight fit, but a fit nonetheless! I also really appreciate your PIREP on the oil accumulator.

Default Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing that. Got me off my but to go work on the rear window installation.

I have a few of questions, if you don't mind.

1) What helmet are you using and how does it connect to the intercom/radios?

2) Would you mind sharing your entry speeds?

3) Did you receive acro instruction, if so, from where? (I'll need it.)

Thanks again,
