continental allows you to go past tbo if you scope the cylinders, saw an article in AOPA. might be worth looking at. is 50k worth it for 300#, your call I guess

Per 625 Appendix C:

"No hard time, including calendar time, between overhauls need be observed in the case of small aircraft reciprocating engines in non-commercial private operation."

What aircraft/engine is it?

Depends on what type of maintenance schedule you are using.
If you are an air operator - this is a bad place to get advice, visit your AMO.
If you are a private owner - see quote above. Only an AME is allowed to sign off a maintenance release in regards to an 'Annual' inspection. Any FAA repair station can do appropriate work.
