Is this going in a Monster Truck. If so, I would get a Picco .28 or LRP .28. Cheaper and a lot better than the 5.9. I had the 5.9 in my Savage XL. Never ran right.

do not get the 5.9. It is a piece of JUNK!

Get the Picco .28, LRP .28 SPEC 3, or the OS .30 VG. AL these engine are very good even stock. When you get it professionally modified these motors are the bomb.

At stock, the LRP .28 Spec 3 is a bit faster but not a difference unless you use a radard gun. When modified the Picco .28 is faster, it will get to the higher RPMs quicker and be consistant at holding it
