Default Werks B7 Pro

Has anyone tried one these beasts yet? How are they on power? Faster than the regular B7? Smoother? Better fuel economy? What's the skinny? there must be someone out there who's already tried it!

regards

Speed Metal, we just started shipping these on Monday so most shops have probably only gotten them in the last couple of days. So if anyone has seen them it would have been in the hands of some of our sponsored drivers when we were developing them over the last 6 months or so. Guys like Kortz, Wheeler, Gosch, Korn etc. Plus it's a buggy motor and this is more of an on-road focused forum. Give the S Grid a shot. In a nutshell though it has more power over the entire range than the old B7 and actually gets better fuel economy. It's a from the ground up new design. Long stroke motor, new porting, new crank that has been lightened, epoxy ramped and tungsten slugged. New carb, new turbo head button etc. etc. etc.

Thanks werks! (Ron?) More power and better fuel economy than th e B7?!?! That's a heck of an accomplishment as the B7 IME is one of the most potent buggy engines out of the box.

I tried getting on S-Grid but for some reason I can't log on.

Any chancew of a new spec B3? Let's not forget that bang for the buck champ! I got one here that's awesome! I love the Werks engines. You can be I'm gonna get me one of those B7 Pros!

regards

Speed Meta, we have a little somethig in the works for the B3 also ;-)

As far as the B Pro is concened though it is definately a more potent package thatn the existing B7 which I think is already comparable to any engine out there. The new B7 Pro though will give you the same bang as say teh $500+ OS Speed engines at a $200+ savings lol! As I said more bottom end, more mid range and more top plus beter fuel economy to boot! Frankly it's a monster for off road! Interestingly enough we are also getting ready to go back to our roots and release some on-road engines too ;-) So 1/8th and 1/10th on-road get ready because we are coming!!!!

Awesome! The B3 is really good stock but with some minor port work (especially the exhaust) and the B7 crank it turns into a monster! I can't wait to see what you've got in store for the B3 because I'm super impressed with what you've done with the B7 Pro!

crc57, go with the O'Donnell OD97T or #6 or #7 from any of the Italians. Head is shimmed out of the box for 30%.

Looks like I will get the B3 pro. Has anyone got any detailed info on them or feedback on how they run?
I assume the 2013 pipe would be the pick for this motor too?
What header would be the best match?

My team boss has the B7 pro, very impressive engine, ultra smooth and good power all through the rev range.
