I got the IDM EVO4 in April. I have only run it once, but it was very good.

I just raced my IDM EVO 4 for the second time. It is very fast. I don't have the new pipe yet, but will very soon...

I believe that the piston/sleeve are the same. Other parts may be interchangeable, but not the same.

I know the crank, rod, and carb are different and I am almost sure the case is different as well.

If it is stuck, Heat it up with a heat gun around the case where the sleeve is, to around 180 degrees (caution HOT!) then sneak a nylon tie through the exhaust, then the turn the flywheel until the piston and the nylon tie pushes the sleeve up to where you can grab the sleeve by hand, do not use any tool to grab the sleeve.

Last I was told (two days ago) is that OFNA still has not brought any of the Picco/JL Evo 4 engines into the USA yet. Best bet is to get the IDM version which I have raced twice now and it is very good.

I have a (1 left) Limited Edition PICCO EVO 4 "EDO" modified .12, it is a combo package, it comes with a complete PICCO 2651 pipe set, 5 PICCO plugs and a collectors pit towel, got a few from OFNA (8 days ago) most where ship to the guys who pre-ordered, click on the links below to see the pictures of the Engine combo and how it is presented.
