I am still running my EB modded Vspec after the 8 gallon mark, it has more top end than stock, nice low end, however it has a more smooth power band all throughout than stock.

it also has better fuel economy than stock, its an overall better engine than stock and i can honestly say im truely impressed with this engine, very comparable to the OS speed as far as power goes, but i think the speed has a bit more on it, but it also cost more than the EB spec.

not often will you see a modified engine last so long considering most engine modders throw the engine so far out of balance that it decreases its lifespan. I believe Ed balances the crank and so on, which are just some of the reasons why it runs so nice in comparison to stock.

im actually curious to how many gallons i will get out of this motor till i have to rebuild it.

Thanks Jesse,
I have a modded V Spec done here in Australia,
They did some work on the crank but didnt see any balancing done. It Has more top end and better fuel milage as well. They also did some tear drop porting to it. Its alittle quicker than stock and im not screwing it up in temps. Im happy with it but for the extra $100 it cost thinking of getting a EB version as it close to what it cost of mine.

The EB's are good but they biggest benefit on the Speed is the hardened crank. It makes things last longer, worth the extra coin.

yes they are maximo. you can buy EB modded motors just about anywhere, to include tower hobbies, rccompound, carolinas rc, amainhobbies and so on.

well im sure the speed is a nice engine and its crank is a work of art, but the eb line of mills last just as long, im going to rebuild my eb spec considering the journal pin is still within tolerance, i think it comes down to after run care. either engine is nice for sure, couldnt agree more and i sure as hell wouldnt mind having an OS speed lol

everybody i know personally who owns an EB modded Vspec has been blown away by its performance, cant go wrong man.

and what i think is nice, is that he balances the crank by removing weight, not so much by adding weight. he also just doesnt use a dremel and mothers polish like the majority, he uses milling machines and lathes, nice and precise.

I own a OS Speed as well...its my mild motor for using on Blue Groove tracks.very smooth power with a reasonable top end......

he is not shut down, i know this for a fact, his mods will be around for a while, which i am truly stoked about. Im guessing they shut down their phone service cause they are probably no longer providing private services? who knows, just as long as i can keep buying his mods im happy!

EB is not closed or closing, and he is now offering service for motors to be shiped in to him to be done, he's had some ups and downs but i think everything is now working out very well for him, glad to see him making it happen.

I have had 2 of the older 06' models both went over 8 gal.

they do have more power than a stocker.
but the big difference for me was that they were also smoother.
