The motor was very smooth and efficient, I was coming in with about 30 seconds more runtime than with a core touring.
I read this week on the orion website that an 8x1 modified version is equal in power to a 10x1 touring version, so that may explain the increase in runtime. I thought 30 secs was a bit to good to be true.
I believe hard springs and low timing is the go for revoulutions in touring cars. This combo will pick up some bottom end power.
