Having the engine aft of your rack makes the *** end heavier. It needs to be trimmed with more water in the FW tanks and moving fuel from aft forward. If you're running dino oil - the engine mfgr has specific instructions - 50 hr, 100 hr etc. I run full synthetics and do oil changes once a season or 500 hrs whichever comes first. I do change the oil and fuel separator filters at 100 hrs.
