got it installed last night. It looks much better quality wise(finishes, attention to assembly detail and materials quality) then the Vertex. Has a larger head sink for the head to. Ill get pics up soon..

well finished breaking it in today. 3 more tanks idling.. Man, this engine idles and starts and responds from tuning sooo much better then the original taiwann 16.. 4th tank in I took it out in the street for a few wot runs. WOW. Its MUCH faster too. Sounds better too. All around I am VERY happy with this motor.. It was in teh 30'sd today and it ran like a champ. Idles perfectly for 10 minutes at a time.. Very nice.... ..
