I think this thread is a good idea...instead of sifting through people talking about everything BUT engines...

My answer...I don't own one yet but everyone speaks highly of the P5....is it true that the new OS VZ-B get's loose after a few gallons?????

it all depends on how you take care of it.. It is a rumor.. I can tell you that..

BTW all engines get loose after a few gallons.. me and another guy I raced with decided to test an os and it made 12 gallons.. no one can possibly believe that.. but I witnessed it.. mine made 9 gallons.. but I drive hard..

the bottom line is: all engines loose their pinch.. some earlier than others.. my vz-b lost it aroun 2 gallons.. but it ran great... and got better.. the vz-b is a remarkable engine... IMO

most engines will last around 5 gallons.. then start giving a little less punch.. and last about 2 more then not want to idle well..


you have to understand... these are well maintained engines
