Thumbs up

I have put about a gallon through it.

But, today it got hot( while leading)....327 deg..... I ordered piston, sleeve, and rod....that might cost $50. But haven't taken it apart, yet(actually haven't even unloaded it out of the trunk, yet).

Talking STS...I ordered one of their pipes for my 235mm 4wd outlaw Picco Integra. Their one piece header and pipe set me back a whopping $35 ! That car lead today as well.

ASD, if you overheat it like that (327F) then it's always a good idea to have a replacement p/s/r available, no matter what brand engine you run.

What is it about temps these days!
I race in Seattle, and mine came off at 300, but it was on rails!!!
But my engine is the STS- RS12 non turbo. Took it apart, and it still looks new, the plug was even wet at the bottom. Still has loads of compression, so it will see another day 'till it gives up the ghost!

Actually, I did get the Turbo one, but swapped out the button from an older MT12. Measured the same, so in it went!
