I would like to upgrade my Caravan to the 900 Shp Supervan.
Can I just change the Shp to 900 hp (or pro-rata equivilant) or will there be some other work also involved? I know I cannot change the prop to 4 blade.

The First Upgrades I believe were the Blackhawks with a 850 shp engine and a four bladed prop.

Texas Turbines upgrade the Caravan with a 900 shp engine and a four bladed prop.

Cessna now offers the Caravan EX with a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-140 867 SHP turboprop with a three bladed prop. Now the visual model do not even have to be changed, unless the bigger engine compartment is noticeable.
