Do you want to run a .21 or .28?

It is now my back up engine as I have the Trinity .24 Extech EBM... and still waiting for my Bigboy pipe to get here but, for the price.... S7 is pretty darn good.... and RB engines last a very long time.... accdg to experiemce and my buddies too.....

your choice....

my choice tho' will be the .24 and the Bigboy!

Default GRP .21

I ordered a GRP .21 modded from Mark at powerhouseperformance.com. The engine is the best of all worlds Idles great smooth power delivery and the run time was 11.5 min and the engine is not fully broken in yet. Mark has a few right now for 280.00 shipped to your door. I liked his modded version so much I ordered another one. Here is the link to his thread powerhouse. Or you can contact him directly powerhouseperformance.com

Take a couple mins and check it out. This engine is the easiest engine I have ever tuned.

you want easy tuning good running plenty of power motor that flat out flyes run the GRP tuned .21 get the promo kit on ebay for like 285 comes with the pipe gets made run time 10 plus min. easy oh yeah and its stupid fast and will last for 10 gallons if taken care of second choice is the os vspec for 240 on ebay it is the best deal out there. but in truggy need a jp 3 pipe to go with it to get the bottom end you will want so that will put it over 300 so go with the grp s7 is good motor but there is reason that almost all the pros are running 5 port or less motors right now mileage

If you are a good driver buy a .21 if you are not quite as good of a driver buy a .28 if you are good at utilizing traction and are a smooth driver a .21 will be better. But if you are a bit agro and not the best driver a .28 will help you get over obstacles that you might not make with a .21 Just my opinion

either way... your choice.... as long as my engine gives me enough power i need... all i need is skill to use that power wisely.... even if my engine is wicked fast.... and then no control.... that speed is useless.... if you're a real good driver then get all the speed you want.... just my two cents...
