A modded motor from 15 years ago may not have the exact same mod done now for many reasons, though parts will look like they are. I have tried many modded motors, JP, TnT, RB, Hott Mods, Dadders to name a few and all have had better than stock power. CEO is right there with the rest im my opinion and on my 367 he did up for me the crank did have a timing change on it from the stock crank. To what degree? I don't know, the cool part here is I don't need to know other than it works better than a stock 367. I know, the dyno says different but the dyno is not the be all end all for a motor. Take a look at some of the elec. 27 turn motors with a dyno lable put on them. All are different and not always the motor with the highest dyno rating turns out to be the best in car. Many times I have used a elec. motor that according to the label should have been a slug and came out to be one of the fastest motors I had run. To me is like the Factory specs. for any nitro motor on claimed Hp. The key word here is claimed and if it is not ststed as such in the spec. sheet, it should be. Many guys I know will buy a motor based on that spec. alone and don't understand why their high Hp spec.'d motor won't out run a motor with a lower spec.'d Hp rating. Yes there are many factors that go with that, but that is what I hear from those guys. I have been asked what kind of power spec's my motor has and I tell those that ask, I don't know but its more than what they run.

See I have not said CEO mods wouldnt be faster on a track..Quite the contrary......please go back and read what I posted, I think most people giving me a hard time didn't even likely read my whole post..... CEO doesn't go after producing big HP motors, he's even said that...he's after modding engines to be faster on a track and he does not care what kind of HP they make... primarily his motors are run on the dry California tracks and he has tuned the motors to run well on that type of track....I have questioned Chris before thru a mutual friend of ours.. He also doesn't play with timing as he doesn't feel its needed for what he is after from these engines... obviously people are happy with his work, he has a reputation for being a very good standup guy....

But it is what it is, and me and CEO modify these engines for very different purposes..Where I live we dont run on hardpack, we run in sticky dirt..we use heavy tires and our tracks favor big HP..... My motors are tuned to run on my type of track surface and are extremely powerful that the big name pre-modded engines sold will seem like stock in comparison..

All I ask is for an opportunity to prove my words..
