It's an excellent motor. Hard to beat for the price.

HAHA!!! x2. My dad had one of those in his Motonica P8C and that thing flew. He, belive it or not, complained it had too much power and put in the smallest restrictor that could fit. And it was still too fast for him. Scary power, that thing had!!!

I have a 09 and haven't finished break in and it has all the power I need. I run the combo pipe and header. Header looks short pipe is efra 3003 I think.

Get rid of that pipe. Don't EVER run a 3xxx number pipe. NO power, higher temps.

For HP in the US, 9886, short or medium conical manifold. Nothing will top this.

For nearly as much power with better mileage in the US, Sirio (or RB if you can find one) 2013.

Everywhere else in the world, 2015, short or med manifold.

Exept the JP 3036, this one has the same performance as the JP 2031, it has even a 15mm opening from the manifold while most 30xx pipes have a 13mm opening.

I only tried it once on a 35+21 and did NOT like it. It was flat, car wouldn't shift, no power. Went back to a 2013 and it was a rocket again. Maybe it would work under different circumstances but not for me.

Read my response just a few posts up. That's all you need to know about pipes.

Default pipes

i have had 2 of these engines

i used the picco 2033 pipe and conical header, loud as hell, but very fast.

these engines have a very smooth power band, which many modern engines lack

and the engine responds well to sleeve modifications, as well as crank mods

1.5L and its run in. very nice

I don't know the 2052 nova pipe with med manifold makes my kyosho m3 evo absoulutely fly with the Jp ro9 black mod!!!! Still one of the Faster motors. But the 2015 gave a little less power but with much more runtime.
