It's right on the money. It gives you a lot more usable weight compared to the stock 400 series wing-a big difference when you do as much transcon flying as we do. Also shaves about 5-10 kts off through wing tip drag reduction. The big speed difference is made up by the liquid cooled engines on the RAM conversion-the one thing we don't have. Comparitively speaking, the RAM 414 has better performance than just about any of the C90 series King Airs. Only KA
that has better performance that I'm aware of is the E90. Other than that, you'd be looking at a Conquest or KA
100 series to get better performance. Only reason I can figure that the low end KSs are as popular as they are is the cabin space.
As for hangar dimensions, they're the same as the stock C414 other than the wingspan. When we moved out here, the house didn't have a hangar which was a real plus. My parents had a hangar tailor made to our specs (heated and air conditioned workshop partitioned from the main hangar bay) and a hangar capable of storing the 414 plus our 1979 C172. Interior area is just a little bit wider than the door opening which is 50 feet.
