Hey Dennis, what is the difference between your RTU and RTO upgrade on a RB X12 5 port Turbo?

Default Seems like the place to ask...

Hey All..I've picked up a car with an MT12 in it, and was told the car only had a fw races on it, and it looks like it...nice shape, but the motor I'm not sure of...without a compression guage, what should the motor feel like to turn it over using the flywheel?
Should it be extremely hard, not really hard, stiff, what?
I KNOW this is not scientific at all, but I'm trying to figure out if I need a new piston and sleeve, or if it can wait...

Thanks for any and all help you guys can offer!

Ron

HEHE

thought I would jump in over here also...


I was reading some of the engine stats... (Picco??)

I forget the manufacturer, but I did notice that they offer a long stroke and short stroke .12 engines...



Can you explain the benefits (if any) or reasons for using a long or short stroke engine?


Thanks

Rich

What do you do in the RTO upgrade package for the 5 port RB? How much of an performance increase does your mod do? I am very interested in moding my engine. Sorry for the constant questions Richey. Thankxs for your help.

Default Collari 5 Port Turbo

Motorman,

Have you seen the new Collari 5 Port Turbo SG as well?
Does this look as promising as the XS12 for enhanced improvements?

Default Hey motorman!

MotorMan,
I sent you an email at the address on your web page concerning my Picco .15 big block. Unfortunately it came back saying the email address is invalid. What email address are you using to accept inquires and orders?
