All I know is that all new Cessna's, indirectly as a result of Cessna being owned by Textron are all powered by Textron Lycoming Engines. The C-206 uses the IO-540 or the TIO-540 which I believe is flat rated at 300hp, whereas the old Continental IO-520 was rated at 285 and the TSIO-520 was rated at 285 continuous, 310 for takeoff.

I was curious to see how they would fit a big lyc into the cowling of the 206. Not much room for lycomings goofy induction system with the tunnel structure cessna uses to support the nose gear. A lycoming installation would require either a complete redesign of the engine itself, or a redesign of the front end of the 206 to allow a tubular mount system like that which is normally required by lycoming engines? hmmmm.. Anyone have any pictures?
