I run them, and they are very good!
Actually, they are the same as the Picco Torque X-Type

I made the choice to get 2 ZX12 DS6 EM and have run the first one in and done 1 race meet with it and I am very happy that I got it. I had a REDS M3WC before this one it had a little more bottom end but not much. Top end is great and I think it is quite a bit quicker.

I race against the Picco Torque X type EM but think this is a little quicker I don't think the Picco comes with the counter balance in the crank standard does it?

I was pitting for two guys running .12 Xceed engines on Saturday just gone.

We ran the DS5 and DS6-EM at a small track back to back.

The stock DS5 was consistently around 4/10 of a second a lap quicker around the track without any differences between the two in terms of gearing or clutch settings, the driver is a regular national A finalist.

Although the other driver running his DS6 was four wheel drifting out of every corner and saying the power delivery was insane and he was only 1/10 of a second off his best ever time around the track, and this guy has an EFRA championship he's no slouch!

I think if your DS5 is wearing thin and you need a good engine the DS6 is fantastic, but for the average joe if you can still pick up a DS5 you're not going to be disappointed with it!

The DS6-EM would probably have a much bigger performance advantage on a bigger track.

I use the Exceed pipe that comes in the power bag set I was going to try a REDS pipe but the port on the engine is bigger on the Exceed engines so the header doesn't fit.

Ok, can someone help with the correct header to use for this motor? I bought the 2669 exhaust kit but the header does not fit the back port of the engine.

Default Proper gasket

Dorian, if header size is larger you need Picco gasket 7255, fits larger header but inside fits smaller exhaust opening

Hey Kev, the header doesn't fit on the back of the motor with the gasket on. It pushes the gasket so it doesn't really seal when I put the pipe on to run it because the gasket doesn't go inside. The gasket fits over the back of the motor fine. If we're talking about the same thing then i'll just order them from your site.
