its a steep price, but you get a lot of stuff. That motor alone would be $375 easily, plus you get an $90 pipe, $35 in glow plugs, $90+ in bearings, and an air filter & oil.

Do the math!

The 367 happens to be on sale at amain for $489.99.

The extras are cool, remember that the pipe does not have a header so you need to spend $30 or so on that too.

The engine is great, not as much torque as a 21-5k but the top end is there and the mileage is superb. In practice I usually get about 10 and a half minutes per tank, in actual racing I've never had to go longer than 7.5 though. 9 would only be useful for a 45 minute main and I would rather have a bit of extra fuel in the tank per stop to be safe from overheating the engine while the engine is running lean on an empty tank.

Well that means nothing if you dont have any reasons to back up your opinion. Why is it not worth it?

I've read about a batch similar to that and supposedly the fix is to run an additional head shim.

Mine doesn't have any of those problems and I don't really have any idea what temp mine runs at but I can tell you I had to bring a heatgun to the track for the first 2 gallons to get the engine started because of how tight it stayed. I have two 30 minute mains and I practice every day for around 40 minutes straight right when I get there and have never had the engine flame. The tune wanders a bit on the high and low from day to day but I think that is mostly because of the humidity here in texas.
