I race a tight indoor track and this is the most popular motor there. Great mileage with plenty of bottom, mid and decent top end power. A couple of guys had to replace the front bearing because of leaking but other than that I've heard nothing bad.

Hey 8&stuff, which 086 are you using, Dynamite, OFNA, etc? Was thinking about buying one of these engines and already have Dynamite 053 and 086 pipes I have been using on a Sportwerks .21 V2. That's some pretty impressive fuel economy you're getting. Also what restrictor are you using? Thanks for any info. I like the Sportwerks, it just doesn't get any fuel mileage.

It will be another tool in your arsenal.
+1 on the 2045!
it's a good choice for a lot of the r&b engines. running it on my WS7 III, too. could not be happier...
definitely S5 rather than S3 btw.
