Default O.S. VZ-B vs. RB WS7 II

What are the pro's and cons? This engine would be going in my X5.

I personally would not choose either of those 2 engines but between them the ws72 is better. The OS does not last very long and the ws72 will last for many many gallons

Guys I have tried alot of motor's out there and with the recomendation or a European Driver he told me to check out CMB and a Motor they make called the Raptor.This motor is plain Scary.Quality built,great carb,holds a tune,long lasting and Just plain faster than ANYTHING I have touched or raced against.Everyone who sees it comes to my pits and ask me what it is.I have had some High Dollar NICE motor's and NOBODY has come to me like they do with this motor.I am a True Believer in CMB now.Dont pass up looking at these motor's.

King Not bad motor's but in the south they dont hold a tune that well.Very Picky when humidity is a factor.Nice motor's though.

The new ones have a different carb. When I was in St Louis this year it was 105 degree's with very high humidity (its very humid locally as well) I only tweaked my high end needle 2 times all weekend and after my mains ( I bumped a couple of times) it came off at 225 with a new exergen temp gun and it was very fast. Their are now several guys running these engines in my area now and everyone is performing very well. Seriously give them a try they are the unknown line of good performing engines and they last as long as any other italian motor.

Omega Super Comp is Picco in different color skirt. All parts interchangeable. I have both and think that the only difference is that the better fit P/S combo's go into the Picco XP vs Omega. But, with a little squeeze who cares?
