We will have another shipment of the EVO4 IDM engines in 2 days they have left Italy and are on the way. The last 2 shipments did sell out in a few days so let us know and we can find you a dealer to get the engine from.

Make sure that your clutch is engaging at rather high-ish rpm. When I used the engagement point I had set for my OS TZ (low rpm engagement), the engine was an absolute dog at anything below half throttle. I thought it was my low end needle but after I tuned the clutch the car became a LOT quicker (and responsive). I noticed that the high engagement point was causing the clutch to slip somewhat so I put in a high grip shoe. Now the car is a rocket. It is almost TOO responsive below half throttle so I actually have to discipline my throttle finger .

You should have some decent bottom end with the 2607 pipeset. You could try the 2651 pipe but I do not know why you are not having luck with the 2607 for bottom. Like was stated check the clutch if the clutch is soft the bottom will suffer. You should know by just seeing if the temp. rises with the low speed while if you run up top the engine cools down. Sounds like you need to maybe work the clutch or work with the low speed needle a little. The engine should be blowing good smoke trail off the corner for at least a good few seconds. Try and let us know what is going on. What is the temp of the engine by the way as you are running it now?
