I do use teflon tape with exellent results everywhere.Had used red RTV silicone at back plate and carb neck with the same results but it is not as clean as the teflon tape.Just don't overdo it with the teflon tape on HSN housing for sealing the HSN shim so you won't brake it.

I've found the lower shim is a bit over-size, now is fine.
But I like the engine, sound awesome!!!!!
BTW, what's the temperature range about this engine?
And, how much copper shims for the turbo head in standard setting?

I've been looking into a BP engine for my Kyosho GT car. I'm not sure which would be the one to get though. It weighs in at 3520 grams right now. It should be down to about 3350 in the next couple weeks. I'm not sure which BP engine would be up to the task of lugging this beast around. Maybe the 735RT or go with one of their off road engines?

Any input is appreciated.

I would think an off road motor would be better, so I would suggest one of the 3 port buggy engines.
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ost-Port-Turbo this should work well and meet most 'spec' rules around the US.

Thanks, I was kinda leaning towards to off-road engines. I know the on-roads have a tough time getting this heavy pigs rollin'.
