all I'm gonna say is look at the worlds. Josh Cyrul has JP sponsorship and HE still ran the sirio in 200mm.

He also had the fastest speeds down the str8 at 57-58mph, this in a belt car up against those gang of tc3's. This with Rody there, and the piccos there, in person, to tune their driver's engines - so rossi being there with Josh just means everyone had the people who know the most about their engine in the pits.

The guys in cali are saying the sirio .12 is hella fast and that's what people are buying up for the paris race. Sleep on this engine if you want to...

Dunno. There is no jury out on the durability of these engines, I've heard some of the off-road guys blew the .21's up in 2 gallons. I'm going to get one before november though, if CYRUL says it's bomb - I believe him. He's not like those other trinity jokers who will just say whatever because ernie's selling it
(CHRIS SMITH!!! ooops, not to mention any names). CYRUL has ran kyosho parts that he thought were helpful and didn't make any bones about it - so I have a tendency to believe this cat.

asd - unless you are very, very good your engine's power won't determine whether you win or lose. I only buy so many because I like to buy and sell stuff while trying different things, I've ran quite a few engines only a few times after break-in only to sell them off.

How you tune it at the novice to intermediate level is much more important than the hp rating. There is a guy at my track shows up every now and then with his os cvx hyper, .6 hp I think. He's as fast or faster than everyone out there cause his engine is tuned well and he knows how to drive very well.

If I were you, I would get the RB because of the fact that if broken in properly their engines last, and last, and last, and last. The very first engine I bought was the RB x12 3 port turbo and it runs stronger now than it did then after 2 gallons.

depends on whose tuning the jp and whose tuning the RB, what fuel, etc. etc. All things equal - no. But it's not far behind. The jp isn't all that, my collari 5 port to me is faster than my jp s12 ts1 turbo.

Default JASON BELL IS THE TRUTH!!!

HOLY SHIZNITO!!!!

I just fired up the J-Tech pixie. This thing is blubbering break-in rich and OFF THE MUTHA F__IN CHAIN!!! It's mated up with kawahara outlaw pipe and sounds WILD!! Damn I love this hobby.

Fastest engine I've put in a car not even close. Give this guy in Florida a shot I never ran a pixie stock to compare but this engine is incredible!

I mean i've tried mt12 short and long rod, jp turbo, collari 5 ports, rb 5 port and 3 port turbos, .15 CVR, os TR, .12 CVR, .15 big block nova mega...aside from the C4 I had in a MP 7.5 this modded pixie is faster and it's still rich and still very, very tight on top.

Now some of that may be my car since it's just gone through the full bearing treatment and rebuild and the drivetrain is silky smooth, but the mid-range and top on this thing are incredible, sounds almost like a 21 when it revs. Once I get a half gallon in this thing it's going to be a monster. I just wish it wasn't heavy.

Jason Bell just made a happy customer.

uhh...too much. lol. But that's cause I bought the pixie retail and sent it to him. Give Bell a holler though he charges less than Richey used to and even less than the smeltz guy who copied Richey and now wants 325 for a modded rossi because "they're so hard to work on"

well I got one of those I'll install it in a few days. You'll never find a hand mod that cheap so I'm interested to see how it stacks up vs. this pixie.

It's light too, I hope the settings are close cause it comes with no recommended break-in needle settings.
