brian, since you have run both, would you choose the toro nero or the plus 21-7 fms for truggy?? the motor i choose would be run mostly on an outdoor track with a 200 foot straightaway.. thanks

Badjam's, the FMS is what i have the most info on because i have ran it the most, the Toro info is direct from the NR drivers that have used them, and Stephen Bess, i can tell you this, i never liked the JP4 pipe, but i ran one on my FMS tonight and loved it, the FMS bulls like a Cummin's deisel lol this thing has some mean topend, but Bess also said the Toro is brutal on top, if the Toro has more bottom, and it should, the Toro would be my pick, the FMS moved my truggy around very well on a very technical track, and was eating GRP's for lunch, well i can put it this way, onto the strait and exiting the strait, there was nothing faster, the bottom is great but more is always better=TORO

well i tell you i took the vario clutch off and put a standard 3 shoe on there and hello beautifull..this thing is the shiznit. i even considered getting another FMS instead of the Toro. the thing about the fms is the ceramic bearing and ramped crank..plus the mod gonna be hard to beat. it seems like every Novarossi i try i like it more than the one before.

Is your fms in a truck or buggy? How would you compare it to a plus 4?

Hey Guys
I could not resist the Jim Hottenger's NR jewel 21-7FMS; ceramic bearing,
filled crank,turbo head, drilled lighten cooling head and on sale. I think the
Toro Nero will replace it soon so I had to get one before they where all gone.
I know it's a truggy engine, but I plan to use it as a back-up motor in my
buggy.(don't own a truggy) What header/pipe combo would be best for a buggy? Twister mentioned short header and the 9901 pipe. I have a 9886 pipe
with the 41021 short manifold on my 21-5k will this combo work on the FMS?
Also whats the differents between the 9901 and the 9853 they look the same?
