It has 26cc over the 3W OF course it's going to outperform.

So I guess you're of the opinion that it's fair to lump ALL engines from 100cc to 126cc and compare them fairly because they ALL go in the same size plane?

If a 246cc CAN'T spank a a 200cc or 220cc there is something DEFINITELY wrong with it. Lets compare Apples to Apples not Comquats! Sheeeeeesh!

Man that took long enough, I was starting to think no one was going to bite. I was ready to pack up my tackle box and go home.

Order a set from Jeff. As his orders pile up it prompts him to order more from MTW.

He showed no stock when I started looking for my headers. But ordered them in, and they are now here, 3 months before I need them.


Be great if Lorne started to import MTW for his line of engines. Does Pro-Flow build headers for their cans/pipes?

Hope this helps.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Here's the way I see it with engine sizing!!.... if a 246quad is the same weight as a 190 or 200quad (or lighter) and uses the same exhaust as the smaller motors, then it's in the same class.

Just like the 120's and 123's are in the same class as a 100cc. Same weight (or lighter) and same exhaust. If an engine manufacturer is stupid enough to continue to produce a 100cc when there are more powerful, lighter 120's, then they deserve to be lumped together!!

Should stir it up a bit, LOL!!

PM Mr super08. He made a set fit with a little filing to the flange.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

You can buy adapter plates from Kole or Dave in the States. Jeff at T bolt sells headers. The DA170 ones will work in a bind or what I did is just port match a set of DA150 headers. Just need to open up the opening a bit and narrow the hole spacing a couple mm.

I can sell you adapters. The da 170 headers are better. I cannot get mtw as Jeff is the distributor at the moment. If I could order 10 at a time I would.
Purchase the da 170 headers from jeff and I will have the adapters shortly anyway.

+1

I compare an engine with the same weight. For me max power and min weight wins if the engine is reliable
