"Where can I get information on the available engines and their respective performance statistics?

The standard Comp Air 7 is designed for engines from 250 to 300 hp. (Extra reinforcements are used on turbo-prop versions). We obtained typical cruise speeds of about 190 mph TAS when our factory demo CA7 was equipped with a 300hp Lycoming TSIO-540. Builders have, obviously, installed a variety of engines in these airplanes. One that has a 230 hp Continental is cruising at 165 to 175 mph. One pilot with a Comp Air 6 that has the constant chord "straight" wings and a 180 hp Lycoming is cruising at 127 to 135 mph with the current fixed pitch climb prop, and previously cruised at 147 when he had a cruise prop on it. Another, with a 260 hp Lycoming O-540 and the constant chord wing, is reportedly achieving a top speed of 195 mph, while one with a 260 hp Continental O-470 reports that he is cruising comfortably at 165 mph.
