If those are Novarossi based engines, I'm sure it will be a winner.

Im digging the filled crank, and the Nova logo on everything...not a big fan of cast aluminum crankcases though, they break/crack too easy..

5 Ports?

Colin, can you PM me with the price, I know it's going to be high it looks like Nova's best internals.

It is a 5 port, with all of Nova's finest internals.

The case is the same as Nova's cases, there will be no issues with it.
In fact, every single engine made has a cast case.

I have been running the 9901 on mine, and I will test a 053 tomorrow.

The 9901 is nice and smooth and is a very good all around pipe for this
mill. I can't see the 053 being any better, but I have been told that it
is even better than the 9901.

I will report back tomorrow about the pipes.

Give us some run times also...

There are different types of cast aluminum...the pocked textured ones like the one SIIM uses, seems to be bad luck for me, (mounting tabs crack)

as appossed to the smother higher density ones like OS uses

We have been getting 9.5-10 minutes on ours with a JP-3 and a 9901 pipe. I am going to try a 053 tomorrow as they are supposed to be even better.

I have never seen a Nova Rossi break it's case, OS on the other hand.....
