my best engine in my line up, good powerband. Used a JP1 and a JP3 pipe on the engine and has a good responce to the engine, break-in is about six tanks driving slow (one on the box for the first tank) I also have the Jammin .21 and my Evo2 gives me more bottom than my Jammin.

I have a Jammin 21 on the way. Is this not a copy of the Evo2?

How is the performance and runtimeif you compare the 2.

Thanks

It's hard to know what's inside the engines but the P7r is a different engine case than the Jammin JPX.21 so they are not the same.

bmainhobbies.com has 3 in stock they cost $229.99 and there are also some coupons you could use on the homepage.

I just ordered one and a Jp-3 pipe. Ive heard it comes with 3 carb inserts, a standard head button, and a turbo head button. I plan to use the turbo with either a P3 or P6 plug. I was wondering which plug you guys might recommend for this engine? I was going to stick with the turbo plugs since my other engine is a v-spec.

always use Picco based plugs if you want the engine to be consistant, O.S. plugs give a diffent tune to the engine than the Picco plugs. Plugs you can use are IDM,LRP,PICCO,DYNAMITE,OFNA PICCO and SERPENT MEGA

please do not use nova based plugs they bleed thru the threads of the plugs

Oh and the cranks on the Jammin and the EVO-2 are different.

You can also use any Nova based plug as well as the Sirio's. These are good as well.

I have not used them to tell you either way. I am sure someone has. And if I had to guess I would like to think that they are as good as the others as they are wearing the O'Donnell name. And they do know what they are doing over there.And also the angle will fit the Picco based they share the same taper as the OS and the Sirio's.

Got my Jammin engine and stripped it down for check. I must admit the built qaulity is excellent. Best internals Ive seen. Very well made. No flaws whatsoever.
Ran it in only 1 tank.
Cant wait to feel it around the track.
