Default Re: Suggestions on engine to get?

Grubee kits are ok, but they're not as universal as the other kits, meaning not all of their parts are compatible as the other engines out there...

The GT5 type engines are nice and reliable with good manners after upgrades are made but parts can be harder to find

all of these engines are very simple with very few parts which makes them really easy to work on and gain experience on, if you mess up on a porting job, it's only $25 for a new cylinder or $10 for a new piston, or you can buy a pre ported cylinder from Fred or a few other sellers along with a Puch or fred head and a rampped piston for not too much more for an instant boost in power and performance. The cool part is that you can learn these engines really fast and easy due to their simplicity and upgrade as you learn. There's lots of info in here on that as well as lots of info on who the better sellers are and who makes the best upgraded parts etc etc... Read up in here and you'll find out just how easy these are to build maintain, and work on...
