well i own the .26. and it has been down more than i have been able to run it.
PRO"S
1- it has terriffic power

Cons
1- weak one way bearing housing
2- terrible pull starter broke 3 of them.. rotostart works but must buy a spacer.
3- wrong needle for LSN comes with it, it runs cooler with wrong needle but no midrange and it wont idle for anythng.

It just seems they rushed this engine out and never thought about durability. I'm kinda upset, ofna fixed one way for free, cost 10 bucks to ship tho. then i had to pay for the new needle, then when i got the needle it came with the wrong o rings so i had to order the new orings. maybe i just got a bum motor, but i think alot of people have had these probs. but when it runs it has almost too much power for my savage.

They're the same motor to my understanding.

Read the link again...

"At first, we thought that we would not stock the WASP 26 engine. We have now decided that we will also stock the Team Orion Wasp 26 engine because the Ofna Picco 26 Outlaw engine is in such short supply. Both engines are made by Picco and are basically identical except for some minor cosmetic differences"

They say the cooling head is different.Does that mean it cools better or is it just a cosmetic thing?

Doesn't make sense to me, two .26's that are identical yet under different brand names, different looks and different price tags.

I wouldn't consider the .26 anyways, I'm looking at the Delta Force T8 purple myself, though I hear it's just as bad to tune as the Picco .26 is.
