  1. I bought our 2011 SHO new and have maintained it very well. I don't know if I should swap out the water pump in it, as it has 106,000 miles on it. I've read that when the water pump goes out, that the engine is toast in about 50 miles. My wife and I have taken several cross country trips in it, and the idea of being stranded in the middle of nowhere is not what we want. Is the water pump problem overblown or is it a prudent idea to change the pump out before we take another trip? For parts and labor my local mechanic says that the book time is 11 hours and by the time the bill is done, I'll be looking at about $1500.00
  2. Dear forum members, It took me a while,but I've finally gotten registered (with much help from the moderator & administrator).This site will (I think) be a very helpful place to communicate with other people to both learn what works and to show others what I learn elsewhere. I'm a very happy 2011 SHO owner and I'm also a member of another site for aircraft construction, which I'm also doing.A small aircraft, 2 place taildragger. Glad to be a member.
