+1 i hope he was joking and if hes not then he has money to throw around or somethin just sounds stupid to me spen 200+ bucks for a motor and put a gallon on it even after breakin a gallon is still fresh.

just a thought should we open a personal thread for shadowhope looks to have alot of questions,not that thats bad just wont clutter up stuff. kinda like i think his name is dreaux or something forgot how to spell it.

i got 16+ gallons out of mine but i did get a PSR kit for it after 8 gallons. it still runs like no other but as soon as it hit idle, it dies because the crank is so worn. the GRP/TQ engines are hands down the best engines ever. but im starting to really like these Alpha engines.

It's a grp but with a new name the tq is 100% grp but horizon sold the engine to them so they changed the label on the head,block etc and put a tq on it.

LOL of course i was kidding. A good engine needs a couple quarts just to break it in and loosen up the pinch. Kinda funny how many people took the comment so seriously, ahh well. Just gives me a good idea of the tone around here. Some of you folks need to loosen up alittle
