the pipe is yes, but you get better header with Ofna(short square) which means a better powerband

Very true. I guess the best combo would be dynamite pipe with ofna square header.

i'm guessing it's due to the fact the it's modded. is there a way to rebuild the p5x and change it back to un-modded?

Go 3 port race $180 super smooth power dynamite 086, Go 5 port race $209 sick bottum end with 086 will scream to the top, Go 7 port race $209 decent bottum killer mid even more killer top 053. All tune super easy now that the traditional hsn and lsn are being used. And if taken care of can go for 10 gallons or more. And parts are super cheap

I don't really understand this whole tuning "issue". If people would just read and listen how to operate the mills there would be no issues what so ever.
Carb works just fine, it just needs different tuning like there are other brands that tune also "differently". It's like people used to drive Petrol car and then change to Diesel one they insist on using petrol "as they have used to do so" and claim the car to be junk as it does not go by their wish.

Anyway to the topic 3pt R-spec or 5pt would both be in 200 range and offer solid performance. When maintained as any race engine should be they will last as many gallons as any other "quality" engine. Very good selection among the mentioned Nova

hmm. based on the suggestions so far, the nova n21b if is looking really attractive. especially since i think my current pipeset is an ofna 53. go engines seem to be pretty attractive also. again, thanks for all of your suggestions.
