Going to engine matters..I had good results with domed piston, OS TZ head button (less burn room), 8mm bore crank, dished backplate....and now I'm about to experiment with an OS carb (made a reduced teflon insulator to match I.D).

AFM
Hi AFM, i have been running the OS carb on my IDM Evo 3 for some time now. with great results. i turned down the original insulator on the original OS carb to fit the ID. the engine holds tune very well and is very reliable.

Welcome back Dennis i have run alot of fuel in through my EVO 3 , and after last race i pulled it down to inspect things. it still has pinch (when cold) and things are still very good inside. probably around the 7Lts of fuel now, still performs really well. but i also recomend the IDM pipe to match this engine.

I finally got a chance to run the IDM .12 with the 2607 pipe and it ran great. motor is very competitive right out of the box. I could make 5 1/2 minutes easy with great top end as well. Car setup on the hand...........not so good.

Patto thats great. You might be thinking about a rod soon. I recommend a rod about every 1.5 to 2 gallons. It may still fit tight but fatigue will settle in the beam section. The good thing about the picco cranks is the pin is almost impossible to wear out. Usually by the time you decide to put a rod in other motors the pin is worn so bad its almost a waste of time.

Everytime I hear/read that someone suggests the skyline (for .12's) or the JP pipes for .21... only nasty things come to my mind and mouth. At least, for what it seems for some people is the best pipe for Sirios, OS, Novas and whatever else with a .12 cid (and the worst of all is at the same time the best pipe)

No problems I am glad that you have had good luck with the engines!!!! The thing that everyone should to keep in mind is that the engine has more power to turn a higher gear for pinions and spurs depending on where you are with ratio's. So what we have found is the the engine likes to use a rather high first gear. maybe a tooth less for 1st because the engine has so much torque. But with the second you can go up a tooth on the pinion to get some more speed out of the motor. It has no problems when you set the 2 speed right. Let the engine come up into the power in first then shift into second. You will find it will swing the larger gear just fine. Short shift will kill the torque as it is not in the power band and gets lugged down. If there are any questions please feel free to email or PM with them.

Yes you can use the IDM pipe and header combo. It is a picco efra number the one you would like to use is the 2607 set. You can get them directly from Phenix distribution, Team XSPower, and also PNP hobbies in Florida, Kamikaze hobbies in California also stocks the product. Just where you are located is where you can get it faster. If you need PM me and I will get you there phone numbers. Hope it helps
