Default Peak Performance DIABLO .12 & .15 (any good?)

I've got an Ofna GPX4 and a Team AE TC3 Factory car, I'm looking to run some beater motors in them for a while rather than doing tons of practice and goofing off time on expensive engines. Are these Peak Diablo engines any good at all? Can they be tuned? If so they'll work for me, as they're incredibly cheap.

I'm currently running a Peak Diablo .15 side exhaust in my NTC3 to see how it goes. I picked it up for $40, figured I couldn't go wrong.

I was actually pretty surprised at how well it ran and tuned. What I don't know is how long it will last. I've run ~1/2 gallon through it now and it doesn't have that much compression compared some of my other motors. It did run plenty strong at the last race so??? I've been running O'Donnells 20% race blend fuel in it.

I've got a SH .12 Pro Turbo rear exhaust motor waiting to go into this car next. I'm just waiting on the exhaust system.

Here's some pix of the Diablo;
