Default any info on the picco xp .12 rear exhaust engine ?

hey people

i have a picco xp .12 rear exhaust engine that came with a car i purchased off a mate. the engine is pretty much new and has had no more than 8 tank of fuel including run in.

I just wanted to know what you guys think about this engine.
reliabilty, speed and overall build

he has replaced the carb with one from a collari due to the original carb leaking.

would this engine be better than my os .12 tr p ??

thanks
John
