    Picco .26 setups

    Ordered a picco .26. Looking for info on headers and exhaust pipes.

    Sound off with your setup, pros/cons.

    Thanks in advance

    Going to be installing mine in a couple of week, hopefully sooner. I have a ERCM pipe for it. Little bit of work to get it in, side mount, not rear.

    Just some heads-up info;

    Be ready to replace the engine bearings at about the 1 gallon mark. The factory installed bearings are, and always have been junk. After break in, which can be tempermental, expect your engine to perform well. As soon as it seems to start acting finicky, that is the sign to replace the bearings. The bearings are sloppy at this point, and in turn so is the crank (too much runout), it will speed up piston/sleeve wear if you don't catch it in time. Also, the front bearing will have a vacuum leak because of the slop. Boca Bearings is where you wanna go to find replacements. I buy their 2nd tier bearings, and leave both seals on the front bearing. This investment will extend the life of your engine.

    Watch for the carb to come loose and develop a vacuum leak. The carb is plastic, with a metal sleeve around it's base. The metal sleeve breaks free from the plastic body, and you cannot tighten the clamp screw tight enough to seal this leak. When this happens, pull the sleeve off, clean and scuff both surfaces and use cylindrical threadlock to glue the sleeve back on. Use Threadlock specifically for cylindrical part retention, and high heat applications. I do not remember the Threadlock part number 'cause it has been a while.

    The 053 pipe will give you the best overall perfomance with that engine.
    Believe 1/2 of what you see,and 0 of what you hear
