Default Picco Evo 4

Just wondering if the Picco P1-R Evo 4 RE (#P1-4094) was the next engine after the JLR Evo 3?
If it is, is it just as powerful as the Evo 3 and have they fixed the Rod problem the E3 had?

The Evo 4 is an entirely new design.
The engine revs much higher and has lost the brutal bottom end.
The power characteristics are now much more similar to Siro and Nova.

I hav not seen anybody with a rod problem the entire year with the Evo4.

Hmmm, thats very tempting! But I do have pretty much a new Evo 3 ready for the Vics.
Just to make sure, Im talking about the .12 Evo 4, not a .21
If I was to get it from you, how much would we be talking? Does it still run best with the 2651 Pipe?
