Welcome to my Boeing 502-6 turbine engine site. This site will feature the 502-6 along with information specific to the Boeing 502-6 turboshaft engine, as well as other turbines I may come upon. Note:I have since sold my 502-6, however, I'll continue to maintain this site for others to use, and to answer all emails I receive.

Background: The Boeing 502-6 turboshaft engine was originally part of a turbine-generator unit, designed to furnish electrical power for magnetic minesweeping, and was supplied to the U.S. Navy for installation aboard 57-foot wood hull minesweeping boats.

12/2008 - I picked up a T53-L-1B turboshaft engine. Puts out 860shp. T53's are amazing!


2/2007 - I purchased a WR27 APU, used on a Navy S3 Viking.
