Ielasi Tuned GP5GTR22 engine

Ielasi Tuned are pleased to announce the new GP5GTR22 engine which is making its official debut this week at the GT European Championship in Lostallo. This engine has been improved in performance, as fuel consumption has always been comfortably above 7 minutes with the old GP5GTR. Now you can expect more acceleration and more speed on the straight line meaning that this engine raises the level even more in this category that is increasingly gaining ground and is in full evolution. This upgrade also includes the new, 15 gram lighter cooling head which will optimise the handling of your car.

Ielasi Tuned Dirt-R offroad engine

New for 2022, Ielasi Tuned has announced a brand new engine for the offroad category, the Dirt-R. Developed on the basis of OS’s new B2104, the new Dirt-R takes a lot of inspiration from their previous Dirt model but with a substantial difference, 3 ports instead of 5 ports. The new engine backplate is modified with their specifications, the intake and exhaust phases customised to optimise fuel consumption and power delivery together with other small details make the DIRT-R an engine of a higher level than its predecessor.

Ielasi Tuned GP9R & Dusty R .21 engines

Ielasi Tuned have introduced two new updates to their line of engines, the GP9R and the Dusty R. The most noticeable difference is the new grey cooling heads which going forward will be the colour the company adopts as its own. The GP9R has only had some small changes to this already reliable platform with new timing and so has a new button and the carburettor has a new black delrin ring on the bellows. The Dusty R takes a step away from its ‘entry level’ roots and the R is a new race version. Featuring a lightened crankshaft with red silicone as well as DLC treatment it has completely revised timing, a double shield front bearing, like that of its older brother DIRT, and the cooling head is now 10g lighter than the previous model and finally it too receives the delrin ring in the carburettor bellows. For both engines, in the near future you will also be able to spec it with a ceramic main bearing.
