I have not tried one yet. If they are as good as I've heard that they are it is going to be in my car for the summer.

This is what it looks like... except they have the carb on backwards.

You can look at inside pictures of Picco engines, the Evo2 Edo Modified and the IDM modified here

just click on the Picco logo and browse all models

Is this considered a mod motor (like EB Mods) or is it a designer motor?

Jim ~ Are you going to run the stock carb?

Ok Lets see if this makes sense

Picco makes the latest Picco .12 engine in several fashions.

Original Picco:
Picco Evo2
Picco Evo2 Edoardo Picco Modified (Factory Mod called Edo Evo2)

What you would call designer, or made under specs:
IDM Evo2
LRP Spec3
Ofna JLR Red Dot
Mega Zx DsII

Moded or Tuned:
Solaroli Tuned (Italy)...no sure if it's allready a designer engine right now
WP Tuned (Italy)
MR Tuned (Spain)
Maxy Modified (USA)

There could be others, but this is what I know so far, and all of them are very powerfull and competent engines which incorporate new lighter cranks, new carb, new conrod, new piston/ sleeve, and new head button...not sure thow on the Mega DSII or LRP...haven't seen their insides.
I Have the OFNA JRL and the Picco Edo and they rock at par with any top engine on the market today.

I agree with what you stated but I think I would put the IDM in both the "designer" and "modded" because some of the crank work is done by hand while the rest of the engine is manufactured to ID's specs.

Do you agree?

I'm going to start with the stock carb and see how it goes. If I don't like it, I will use a Novarossi carb.

I'm going to pull it apart tonight, clean it and have a good look at it.

Agreed.

The carb works fine...very stable...

Break it in very rich, almost at factory settings with Nš 6 glow plug...one tank at idle and then 25 minutes at the track...
After break in use Picco or Mega Nš 7 glow plug and set your low end needle at about 8 turns out and your high end at about 5 turns out...it takes several laps to warm up before you touch any needle for fine tuning from there...

Enjoy

Ciao Carletto

How does your WP Picco compare with the Edo?? The backplate indentation not only reduces the possibilty of conrod friction, but it also increments crankcase volume...more top end or more low end???
