Default help on .21 engine for racing

I need a .21 engine in order to race in my buggy. I would like one that is fairly easy to tune, and would work well with a dynamite 086 pipe. Somewhere in the 200$ range. Any advice would be appreciated.

the dynamite 086 pipe is a perfect pairing for a GO Tech .21 3 port race motor with the turbo head. go to the "official gotech engine thread" in here and you will see everyone say that. now if you are looking to buy a motor, i have a go tech that has just been rebuilt (new piston/sleeve/conrod) that i am selling. the old ones werent bad, i just wanted to replace the bearings so i replaced all the parts while i was at it. crank and the block are in perfect shape and TKO bearings were put into it. also included will be the old p/s/c as well as an extra P3 glow plug. if you are interested let me know. $120 shipped to your door. let me know and i can send you some pics

As many people recommended iin other threads get the nova n21bf or a go 3 port sport or the go 3 port race. All under 200 dollars and they all work with the 086 pipe. Dont get anything expensive until you can tune. If your ofna force still runs try to learn how to tune on that before you buy a new motor.

Look into these, or a new V Spec.
