OS .18 TZ shatters the two horsepower barrier!

Dec 01, 2006 No Comments by

Prior to our latest dyno test, the most powerful small-block engine we’ve tested was high-strung .12 competition engine. At 1.6 horsepower, this engine put out more power than any small block of any displacement – until now.

In a recent dyno test for an upcoming issue of RC Nitro magazine, the new OS .18 TZ rear-exhaust engine cranked out a record setting 2.28 bhp at 30,500 rpm. It shatters the 2hp barrier for small-block engines well before anyone else had a chance to get close, making more horsepower than four very prominent big-block engines we’ve previously tested. The TZ also set a new high mark for torque, measuring an amazing 83.1 oz.-in. at 25,850 rpm.

The new TZ is a ground-up design that features a 5-port configuration with a turbo head and crank. An all-new 3-needle 11K carb features a big 6.5mm venturi for better breathing.
