AGREED. I purchased this motor from Kamikaze and it runs great! I would recommend the PICCO 2651 matching pipe and header set later down the road.
I used my Skyline V12R pipe and header for a few tanks and it ran good (once it got tuned to it) but now with the new pipe and header it runs sooo much better.
I personally think you should spend money on the things that matter (engine, servos, radio, good starter box, etc) because later down the road you don't want headachs or be stuck replacing stuff AGAIN just to 'upgrade'.
I bought my car second hand off a good friend. But I have been out of it for a long time and didn't realize it was a 07 car. Kamikaze helped me out big time to get it updated with a ton of updated 09 parts and the new engine and pipe along a few other misc. things I've purchased to 'update/upgrade' the car.
You don't want to spend money later down the road to 'upgrade'...as long as you start off with good equipment .. doesn't have to be Pro or super expensive just 'good'. Considering your budget of course.
