That's a Soloy conversion, done in Olympia, WA. 420-450 shp Allison (now Rolls Royce) turbo prop, MT prop. I think it is about 450K for the conversion. A great engine on floats, especially with reverse (docking and what not - but don't hit the dock!). It does burn 25-28 gallons per hour though. The float 206 with the 300 hp I0520 piston is considered a water-hog. Maybe that's why the reg on that plane says C-FHOG - For former Hog. That conversion would be fun on wheels too.
