That engine is basically an S5 that has a bi-turbo crank shaft like the WS9/WS7 but it is not a coated crank, it also has a turbo plug. When breaking the engine in be sure to pre-heat it up to 160-180 degrees before trying to start it and remember it's going to take a full gallon of fuel before it's fully broken in and running real good.

What Pipe does this combo come with? It's not the 2045? If it was, this is a good deal.
