theres a lot of good engines and great engines out there,but for me personally i like the ops/radical engines.

reasons why:

1.very very reliable
2.holds a good tune and idles well even after a 45min final.
3.very smooth linear powerband on the 21t
4.10+ racing gallons is the norm for these engines.
5.almost fit and forget..just keep your filters clean and thats it.
6.use p3 turbo plugs and they just last and last.
7.never flames out..ever!

i guess you can see why i like them

Novarossi P5XS has been treating me very well. I would stay away for the GOs.

I like the Axe Rossi Cobra engine, the one w/ the champagne colored head. I have 2 regular ones and 1 hot-mod and they all scream. I've got 2 gals on 1 and 4-5 on two others and they fire up everytime. Not finky at all, takes a std. plug. Runs with and past vspecs and ws3's all day. Top end is plain sick. Little pricey. Good luck!!

Novarossi P5XST with NR Long header 9901 pipe

OS 2008 V spec, 2050 or 2060 pipes.

Ex Tech, 9886, or the extech pipes


all 3 are very solid engines and you can win races with them and all 3 have very good tunning charictoristics, and hold a tune well, and have good runtimes. Between 8 to 11 out of all 3. And support for these engines on here is unmatched, there is always someone to offer positive solutions and help if needed.

I would definitely say the RB Concept C6 BBT because I looked on all of the forums and it had zero complaints that could not be resolved. I have had mine sins the start of the year and it still has tons of compression. It passes everyone and has the easiest tuning.
