I think the Picco P3 is priced around $195, this engine has received good reviews indicating good power throughout the rev range.

Nothing in that price range will touch the Picco 28.... probably nothing under 300 will touch it either.

STS made some screaming engines, but their quality has taken a huge hit and parts support is next to nothing. The Axial spec 1 engines are probably the weakest of the 28s available. Their 28 RR is a little better, but it is still a Kingstar. The LRP 28 or one of its twins, the Nsram 28 or SH 28, is fairly powerful, nice to run, easy to break in and tune. Glen

I have an LRP .28 Spec 3 in my DM-1 and love it. It has tons of power and a pretty decent top end as well. The cost for an LRP is $165 tough to beat for the price. My buddy run a Picco .28 in his and my car seems to have more top end.

If the Picco is tuned and piped properly it will easily beat the Spec 3 on top end... However not everybody has their engines setup correctly so anything can happen........

I don't know about EASILY beating the LRP but I do agree on a tune makes a world of difference. What are you basing the information on?

Piccos make the most power for the buck by far.

i have a vspec and a p3-28...the picco kills the vspec in mileage and power by far....both have 7mm restrictor and both are on JP3 pipe and header,same gearing.

the vspec was $300 and the p3-28 was FREE....LOL

but seriously i love my p3-28 and will be buying another one real soon as this one has over 8 gallons on it(and still has the same pinch as the day i got it)
