Maybe he should get any of the new .18 engines that are a direct replacement for the 2.5. I am partial to the sirio, but there are a couple more good ones out there.

You can run a engine hard with out blowing it if it's tuned right. Must of been a little to lean. Every so often I check mine with a temp gun to make sure I with in the recommened heat range of the engine. A good break-in helps too.

I almost did the same thing with my 2.5 engine. Well, I would've, but thank god i didn't because i got somone to buy it for fourty bucks. Didn't have the heart to tell him that he was buying my problem. The thing only had about a half gallon thorough it. God, that engine was a nightmare. Couldn't run it for 5 minutes without it stalling.
