Default How many gallons you guys been getting through your Picco P7 Evo 2?

How many gallons you guys been getting through your Picco P7 Evo 2? I'm running %30 and found to keep the explosive power on it I run rich low and high. I've got 6 gallons through mine so far....about to be 6.5 today hopefully

i got about 8-9 on mine before the rear bearing let go....My fault for not putting in a new rod and Ceramics....But i wanted to see just HOW long it would take it....and the funny thing is...after that much fuel...it had 5X more pinch then Any other High end mill on the bench....Ninja RB OS Nova.

so far the Picco's hold better pinch then the OS,GRP and RB engines we ran this year...Picco uses very good piston material..... as well Picco steel is also superior to many other engines..the Picco crankpins last far longer then any other motor I have run ...........PIcco engines are highly underrated and discredited.. for the $$ nothing even comes close...

First one went almost,original P-7 went into 15th gal befor the rear bearing went.It started leaking at front bearing enough to be slung off & leave marks about the 6 gallon mark but made no tuning difference.At about 11 gallons it was still good enough to catch or put 4-5 car lengths on many other motors but started noticing lots of fuel leaking out of slide.Some where about the high 12 gal mark people stopped commenting how good it looked.About 14 gal got difficult to tune & had to stay on top or needles,low to mid 15 gal bearings went bad & started blowing plugs.Replaced bearings,rod,& had very light pinch put on sleeve & now works great for play motor.

Jammin version had bearings go early(few gallons) but runs fantastic now.My brain just went blank on how many gal that one has 5-6 I would guess,Havent run it for a while but still has more pinch than my original P-7 had about that milage.I have a couple evo2 one has less fuel than the jammin & the other was a dud from the get go & never got much fuel through(I gave up on it).
