Thanks - now I really want one.

Is your engine mount best for mounting this engine in the NT1?

I tested the engine eventually…….. same performance as my Sirio EVO4. I will modify the engine to enhance the performance later.

The engine seems to do some time more to be runned in, this is seen by the wide blanco surface at the upper side of the piston.

looks to me like 7 transfer ports and 2 bypass ports

I think I'm gonna give one of these engines a shot. For those of you that have the Capricorn .12 motor and ran em', what is your input and what is a good pipe or pipes to run with them. Thanks in advance.

The Sirio 2611 will work fine with the enigne. I have used the Novarossi 2601, and RB 2604 both with medium headers. That also works very well.

The engines run great. They make lots of power, run cool, and make great fuel mileage. A tough combination to beat.

They're basicly Sirio evo4 engines right?. But then rebranded and tuned a bit?.
I'm asking this because i want to know if ít's proven technology and not a totaly new concept which could give problems.

Hi Uriah,

The tuned engines are more like the new XXX Sirio, but with some hand tuning. The timing is different than the old Sirio Evo 4. The fit, and finish of the Capricorn engines are better than that of Sirio. This engine runs better, and has more power than the Evo 4 too.
