The bonnie has the 360 degree firing order and the scrambler has the 270 from the twin cruisers. A lot of what I've heard from people is that they seem to prefer the 270. My only experience is the 360 on my bonnie and the 270 on my brothers speedmaster. They're not too far apart, but the 270 is (imo) smoother and more forgiving. The 360 gets happy around 3k but the 270 seems happy as low as 2.1k.
