Its not a big block but it is larger than what you mentioned. I would go with a picco .26 red dot. Tons of power and drops in. It is also cheaper than the O.S. motors yet still very good quality.

The sirio s27 has been good to me, but needs a mount, throttle linkage and bb pipe/manifold. It's not a true big block but you'd think it is.

I would go with an .18tm. From what I have seen they are just as good as the .21tms. If price is a factor you could probably get an .18tm cheaper than a .21. They are pretty much the same. Not really a fan of big block conversions. Stick with os though, they make good engines.

The .21tm really isn't that much larger.

got the OS .21 TM. i realise its just a bit larger then the 3.3 but all i was really looking for was a better motor all around. i have read alot of places that this motor is easy to tune and holds a tune very well

i just got it in the mail yesterday

I hope you like it. The O.S. should be better than the 3.3 in every way. The O.S. does not have much more power but can handle running in race environments a lot better. So it should provide hours of fun.

It will have more torque than the 3.3, even my modded 18tm's have more torque than a 3.3. You'll love the tuning.
