Owner´s note: "The turbos are completely manual…use ‘em or don’t. Actually this was a popular add-on and are called “turbo normalizers". The original owner of this plane flew in the Western Texas and New Mexico areas. He used the turbos for high airports where density altitude was an issue. If you ever flew in and out of high altitude fields you would trade anything to have these! Really a nice addition to the airplane".

- Prior owner´s note (on performance): "When I fly in instrument conditions which is mostly how I fly, I flight plan 120 kts and that is pretty accurate most time. At 10,000 ft. you can true the plane out at perhaps 135 kts. and maybe 4 or 5 kts faster with the turbo normalizer. The good thing about the turbo is that the performance does not drop off so much as you climb."
