Heaps of guys at our track run the JP Modified RS-12.

For an extra $100(Aus), there is very little difference between the JP version and the standard RS, and from what I've seen, the JP version has a bery short life span.

Have not yet seen a 5 Port run yet.

So the performance is around the same? My JP C12 is WAY faster than my Nova CX12........ Why would it have a shorter life span??

Not sure if you saw my car in QLD AMG, but it was easily keeping up with JP's down the straight (and sometimes overtaking them). My 3 good friends all run JP RS-12 (all purchased together), and all are convienced that there isn't a significant improvement in power compared to a standard RS-12.

There has been 2 cases where both JP's have blown prematurely (both drivers are very experienced).

For $450(Aus) for the JP RS-12, and only $360(Aus) for the RS-12, I rest my case.

WTF $520!!!!

Del Rossi Hobbies in Campbelltown got the very first RS-12 imported for me for $370 just before the QLD State Titles. I had to pay alittle extra to get it shipped over ASAP.

theres very strange.....
world class tuner Jean Paul's engines are nothing. i heard the same from my LHS that even an OS 12TR can keep up with a JP. but dont u guys agree with me that the modifications are really nice, the BIG air intake venturi, the turbo crankshaft...just so yummy!
