I haven't used an off the shelf 19 turn in a long time for a very good reason. Like what was said earlier, you just never know what you're going to get. I've had handout motors that just wouldn't perform no matter what was done to them. By going to a tuner Like EA Motorsports, br00d, etc... you can eliminate that chance for the most part. They know their business relies on the customers being happy with the product. They're not going to sell you a dog.

One thing to consider:


A slower motor will make the car handle better, and vise versa w/ a fast motor. So if you're bouncing off the pipes, or overshooting most turns, then your laptimes might actually get worse with more power.

True, but this isn't a difference like going from stock to running an 8 turn. It's a big enough difference to mean picking up a couple tenths from the added speed and usually the punch you get from a tuned motor, but probably not enough to make your car undrivable. If that's the case, there's something else wrong.

One thing that I look for is who does the complete tuning job,and so far the only two that fit the bill are Putnam or Brood.
