Default Who modded this motor?

Just curious, this is the second one I've rebuilt like it. It's a Picco .28.

Powerhouse likes to scallop the sleeve like that. Others do too though so who knows.

If I had to guess from motors I've seen I would say Powerhouse or maybe ProTwister.

The bridge on the 3 port exhaust broke on both sides, it was pretty thin.

What does the piston look like? I can't imagine
that it's in good shape after being in that sleeve.

I think its the handy work of mark smith of powerhouse. I have a picco 28 turbo crank mod by powerhouse and the sleeve looked like that.

That can happen even on a stock one. I had several onroad Nova motors do it while running a certain VERY popular fuel. I used to love the stuff but after that I switched and have not had it happen since.
