Is there room for a header on an Aurora? I bought the non-pumped SZ intending to use one because of the problems I'd hard about with the pumped engine. Figured I'd use a header and have the same consistancy and reliability that I'm used to. Just noticed the other day there might not be room for one on the Aurora. Anyone out there with an Aurora used a header tank?

No need for a header tank on the Aurora IMHO. Most of us are using a fuel magnet without a header tank and I can get a consistant run from start to finish. I can drain the tank down to the last drop as well.

Thanks. I'll just have to wait and see if I get one.

The purpose of the header is to help maintain a consistent flow of fuel to the engine. The fuel magnet achieves the same goal. The header tank does give you some additional run time though .

I was under the assumption that you couldn't use a fuel magnet with muffler pressure and no regulator.

Exhaust fumes will cause the sponge to break down sooner but it can be used as long as you check it regularly. It may be simplier in your case to take Stevie's advice and use the header tank.

That was my initial intention but after looking at some pics I didn't know if there was room for a header or not. Looks like a header is the cheap solution and the Cline regulator is the expensive solution.

This will also work great and not suffer from exhaust pressure.

I usually put a header tank in just to see the fuel level better and when the main clunk brakes you notice that your header tank starts to go down despite the main tank being full.

I also got the 91SZ non pumped but I also bought a webra regulator that I'm planning in using after break-in and if I notice some inconsistent fuel supply during the flight. Maybe worth to check out? At least if the webra reg fails, you can bypass it and run the engine stock. No fumes in the main tank
