i think it's a waste of money, and definitely not an upgrade.
Listen to the "Baird".....he knows everything.....(grin)....Zoom engines are the only I've ever used....not a single issue yet....the intake ports on these engines are larger than other makes....more mixture...more power....I've heard of slant heads overheating and warping but I've never encountered this...to me it's more bang for your buck.....just my 14 cents worth...( adjusted for Obamanomics)
