It is a Picco EVO2 or EVO3 model.

It's based on the Picco EVO3 and it's probably the fastest of the Picco derivates out there.

LRP are the only ones that have really different timing in this engine.

It's a screamer.

Only problem is, LRP quit the 2,11cc market, so if you need spare parts, you'll have to buy regular Picco/IDM/JLR/Mega parts, which will all fit, but will bring the engine back to the regular Picco performance.

Exactly 63,29 km or 3.6 hours, whichever occurs first

Nobody can answer your question. You can destroy an engine while you break it in, and someone else could put 5 Gallons through the same engine.

The LRP engines have the same quality standards than any Picco based engine, which is sometimes a good thing and sometimes not.

They are Italians after all....
