Performance wise these motors are very close in comparison. Both are nearly a full K.

Should be a fun test at the least 😎

You may be asking yourself "what is a crossload?"
Yes, no? In case you missed it, the Aerotech 98 mm Crossload information release is attached.

Cesaroni reloads are generally cross-compatible with Aerotech hardware as well in the 75 and 98mm sizes, and include Aerotech size o-rings, except for reloads with large "XL" size nozzles.

Aerotech Crossload instructions. No big surprises here. Using the supplied CTI style o-rings, the Crossload instructions have you assemble the motor the same as the standard CTI instructions, with the only difference being the inclusion of the Aerotech seal disk.

On my way home today I came across a turtle crossing the road. I moved him to the side of the road, and lo and behold, another turtle.  I've enlisted the help of turtles, and the turtles are now running the build.  Please bear with us.

The parts for both motors have been opened. Cesaroni K1620 reload and hardware is on the left.   Aerotech K1999N on the right, with blue Rousetech motor.
