I will say tho that the modifieds can be more sensitive to setup...plug/pipe/fuel/clutch all have to match what the engine has been tuned for....
Doesn't seem to kill the bottom end of my Speeds. Not that they have tons of bottom anyway...

Depends on the size of the tank your asking about..
Roughly 500cc-750cc is all it takes to seat and lap everything in for race tuning. Every engine varies to how much fuel it takes.

oh its fast i just finally, got it to run right when i put a new plug in it .
i keep on tuning it and, it would flame out on the track and i figured out it was the plug the whole time.

i know when im done the second gallon it will be a beast.

I like to run 6 tanks through or so and then hit the track.

Once you learn how to set up your car and clutch for a modded engine it is all usable power and you won't want to run anything else, but as stated it's a preference thing. I won't use any servo but 7955's but that does not mean that all the other ones are crap. Stick with what works for you. I prefer the reliability and power of my Clockwork's engines

I like my performance enhanced engines ,better than stock, Smoother power, better runtimes and faster all around. You just cant compare them with stock!! My lap times improved alot with the smoother power compared to stock engines. And as far as dyno's go. Well Yes they work for the engine builder to help them out. But for real world testing goes ,you cant beat the track testing. But there is no way your going to run them dyno numbers on the track ,with the same results as the sheets confirm.

I can alter/modify them for different applications, from all out brutal power to a smooth easy to drive engine with excellent mileage. It's all up to the customer what they want out of there engine.
