GT4-R Terror: Mugen is bringing in the current JP Black Modified
.12 engines. Ace Hardware Hobbies and Speedtechrc.com are
two retailers that are carrying this motor... Now for the good
news....the motor is basically stock. By this I mean that for $220-240 you will get an engine that runs like an MT-12...the timing
on the crankshaft intake, transfer ports and exhaust ports are
stock MT-12/RB12 numbers...compression and squish dimensions
are stock also....the only differences are that JP does modify the
intake bowl but leaves the venturi intake at 5.40 mm (stock),
cut the end of the crankshaft with a single turbo flute so that
the engine is ROAR illegal....and then JP does cut some flow
directors into the bottom of the sleeve so that flow is improved
into the two transfer ports that are totally stock...
So that is my two cents worth...on the other hand, there is
no doubt that based on the reputation of JP (2 consecutive
World Championships in 1/8 Onroad...) that if you can obtain
delivery of the .12 JP Black engines....you will probably sell all
that you can take delivery of!...go figure....
