I think you have a 5 port Factory Team motor. 16.2 x 16.9 stroke. 2.8 HP and should come with rear Ceramic bearing.

I think the PN is ORI80702

They can be difficult to figure out unfortunatly.

They are great performers no doubt, and do good on fuel mileage too. The only gripe i would have is that spares and support in the US is rather lacking. I ran them in my 1:8 on road cars until the support tanked. Id say keep it and run it, should also have no issue pulling a Truggy along as well!

Best pipes for lm based engines (Orion werks sirio) are 2013 for bottom end power and 2058 for mid/top power!!

The seller could not tell you which engine it was?

But this engine is LM based, like Sirio and XRD. For advised exhausts you can check the Orion website or check what the other brands are running.
