I ran this motor for the first time this weekend.. and absolutly amazed by the power.. i currently run with a JP2 pipe.. my race mate runs his with a JP4, and alot of the team guys are running it with the AE pipe, and Jammin header.. and said they liked that over the 2066..

I think this motor has plenty for truggy, in all departments.. pulls non stop it seems..

I am running it in my MP9.. but iwth all those different combos.. i think everyone likes the AE pipe more..

Tuning is a cinch.. mine didnt need much from the factory settings.. just a little bit leaner on bottom and top.. and it was wicked.. and i think im still fat.. due to having excess stickin to the wheel.. and such.. but its so fast..

when turning on the needles.. just turn small amounts.. never more than an hour.. as this motor is pretty responsive to just the smallest turns..

MSR 1005 as well as a 086 also work very well on this mill...

I run the Orion plugs and if I don't have any I run the p4. The Orion plugs work very well and last a long time.

I will be using the new us spec in truggy ,and the old one will be just fine in truggy like everybody has been saying tons of power with a 7 , with a 6.5 still pulls hard on bottom and top .Super easy to break in ,no long break in process . tons of pipe options .
