If the grp plugs are anything like the ninja plugs then I believe this may be the cause of flame outs with the grp engines. I remember having a ninja and just had no luck with the plugs. I hear about people using os plugs with their grp engines getting better results

Go os

It's kind of funny. Adam and Truhe go to the local track around my area. I was having problem with mine flaming out and Drake took it, tuned it and now the thing runs non stop. So to say they don't tune their own motors is untrue.
My comment was related off of a post before mine, that DRAKE AND TRUHE had GRP tunners doing there engines at this particular race. Not that those two can't tune there own engines, they do all the time a local races and smaller events and your own races, they are more than able, but still as stated befor, Drakes flamed what 3 times befor the main, it happens to the best of them at that level. Hope that clears it up for you.

dont sleep on them Sirio engines...the Sirio S21 CL7B STI Tuned mill hauls major ass!

i will admit their carbs are nothing but temperamental, the easiest fix for that is to run a different carb all together. You can run an onroad carb to eliminate the erratic tune. I have heard of people changing out parts on the sirio engine, but i personally would rather just run a different carb all together. im wondering if the old P5 carb will fit on a sirio engine...i also know of peeps that run the motor stock all together and have excellent luck with longevity and performance.

but when the motor is dialed in...it has nothing but a TON of power, more so than a stock Vspec hands down.
