How does this engine (Tuned and Stock) compare to the JLR red dot evo 3?

I’ve run the JLR for most of the year, and I like the engine. Its got a lot of torque, and with the right pipe it revs nicely. Overall, it’s a very good motor.

However, for the last 2 weekends I’ve used the JP First Line P3L Mod and I fell in love with it. With the 2630 pipe set the engine is like butter, its very responsive, but not in a peaky way. Its hard to describe, the throttle feels less like on/off switch. It pulls evenly from the bottom to the top, and the top end on it is amazing, my car was faster than anything else on the straight. I was even able to make 5 minutes, with about 2 laps worth of fuel left in the tank, on Maxy’s fuel. And I made my first A main with the engine, at the KO Propo Grand Prix.

For $30 more, I would get the JP over the JLR. I might get another one soon, so you want to place the order with Team Kamikaze before he runs out, I know there’s more people who wants them.

How does the jp compare to the max? Can you see a difference in lap timesand if so how much on what for kind of track. For me the difference between a fx03 mod(same as e first line) and a rb r3 was .2 seconds on a fast track.
i just bought a modded first line as a basic/training engine, and for the race engine i'm considering the xxl3, but i would like to know the speed difference, because for the price of the max i can buy two first line's.

Alright, I am pretty much convinced on a JP engine. How would you compare the JP 12 P-3L Tuned to the JP Eagle 12 TL-3T Stock? Is it worth the extra 75-100 bucks that I would end up paying? Has anyone used both engines?

Thanks,

Thanks,
You will be happy with the JP .12 P3L Black modified and as long as you pair it with the JP 2620 pipe set, then I'm sure you can keep up with the JP .12 Eagle TL-3T engine, the bottom line is that you won't be dissappointed, just think about runtime.

Where I race we have about the 200' straight. We also travel down to 301 in MD. How is the run time with your eagle and the 2602 pipe?

It is a Nova Rossi based motor, so reliability is not an issue.

the eagle with the 2602 is crazy for runtime, I get 6 minutes every time. My buddy runs the eagle with the 2630 and has alittle more bottom but it's harder to tune and he get's 5 min exactly
