Have you done all the upgrade things on your smr (filter, cans etc etc) getting the very last pony before you dive in a project like that?

If you want to change engines I guess the effort doesn't make up for the slightly possible more "juice".
If you are up to it, rather put an rc8 engine in it. It has been done before.
