I friend went from the os .12 cvr to a fantom .12 '03. I saw his car run with the os before and now with the fantom. Fantom definitely runs better for his mid to top end. The tune seems to hold up fairly well. He was actually running against the mt12s and rb x12 and keeping up with them.

Its a great little motor. Cheap and hopefully durable. If you regear to the motor you can be just as fast as guys with bigger motors. I too had a .12 CVR-X, another really good motor, and of course, the Fantom is faster.
