Default .12 JP New RS12Turbo RE Need engine info

I need some info on this RE engine by JP. It's a JP Modify RS12T turbo. Need some specs on it like HP,RPM, and reliablity. Anybody seen this engine run before compared to the MT 12 , Novamega, and RB 3 port X12?

I have a RS12 non-turbo which is a nice engine. Gets out performed (could be me!!) by MT12 engines in the low to mid range. Requires a lot more tuning than the CX12 and MT12 engines (I mean chassis tuning).

This weekend is the big racing debut I was gonna run it earlier but I was playing with my old RS12 trying to get it right. Still no success.

I have shimmed the RTU, just wondering what plug to use. I have a Novarossi C4S in there now. Also I am using 20% nitro with 9% caster and 3% synth. Hope thats an OK combo.

Use a number 9 plug preferrably MC 9 or dynamite 9 (They are the same) Or an alternative is a number 8 novarossi or RB. That engine will kill anything colder than that due to combustion turbulence. The 9 will give you more off the corner torque. Be sure not to overlean the low end. It should struggle to shift the first 2 laps of warm up (the low end needs to be that rich) The top should be around 4 1/2 and the bottom 3 1/2 from closed. After the five minute warm up the engine should be 220 to 240. It will come on at the 7 minute mark and should come off the track 245 to 265. Low speed in many cases will have more of an effect on engine temp than the top.
