Default Which engine?

Looking for a new engine for club races.. not looking to spend too much.. but want something reliable, and good low/mid end.

Choices so far that fits my budget..

Novarossi 353 +2 Edition 08' with 2630 Pipe
Picco JLR Red-Dot with 2651 Pipe
Picco P1-R Evo4 with 2651 Pipe
IDM P1-R Evo3 with 'not sure' pipe
Sirio S12 XXX VK Touring w/EFRA2653 Pipe

anything else?

if you want low to mid power you cant go wrong with a picco version engine.
Also i have found the relibiality of these engine awesome.
If you re interested only for club races go for the normal p1r-evo4 and not the
edo edition.

Buy an RB T10rc with a ballistik mod done, i have the T9rc with the ballidtik mod done and it gets great run time and plenty of power so i would hate to see how the T10rc goes. Just pm Ballistik Mods for a price he can supply the engine with the mods done and offer a whole heap of other engine services as well at a great price.

Don't over look O.S. the xz line are great engines. Much better than the tz's. Easiest engines to tune and they hold well

i wish, i believe it will be way out of my budget... the engine itself it out of my budget.. let alone with a pipe and mod.

maybe u can donate ure T9RC, then you will have a excuse to buy a T10RC. lol

Yep may as well run the best gear all the time, my other engine is a T9rc with an ex factory RB engine which is just as crazy as my T9rc with the Ballistik mod.

Do the IDM Evo 4 with the 2651. (if you can afford it) Or do the Picco Evo4 with the same pipe. I would not get an Evo 3 version of a Picco sedan engine. The rod is just not that reliable. The Evo 4 rod is much better.

Yeah i was looking at the Evo.4... Seems like the cheapest aswell.

Picco Evo 4 - $200
Pipe - $85
Rod for replacing after break in - $25

Novarossi 353 08' with 2630. i can get for about the same price aswell

Picco is ok.. but it will lose power after you start running it and you over heat it about 1 or 2 times.... I would just go with a Novarossi, very strong and reliable, and this engine makes crazy power

My experience with Picco based engines are not the same as what Gordo has posted. My engines make good power and last. Any engine can overheat and that can cause damage. Right now the biggest problem with Novarossi engines is the glow plugs.

Bro, you can't go wrong with this one or a similar

http://cgi.ebay.com/RB-CONCEPT-V12-R...item563c3f5e24

http://cgi.ebay.com/RB-CONCEPT-V12-R...item255a47458d

I'm out running those newer semi-priced lrp's and novarossi's easily... One of the best ever I'm sure. I have the 3 port EFRA legal but anyhow (this should be even for more power)
