Spend another $50 and get a V-Spec or better yet another $100 will get you a ninja jx.

Another good engine is the nova plus 4, but unless your a good tuner stay away from it for right now.

i wish

the euro and the dollar are still a bit off so price reductions are not in the near future .

I would look at a modded novarossi N21bf from Houstons Engine Serives at www.houstonsengineservice.com. This is a great motor even if you just get the stock motor. i have one with 17 gals of fuel though and the only thing that i need to change was the glow plugs. I now have one for back up that im getting ready to send to Houstons to have modded.

The N21BF is a great little engine. Great price and good on gas. It's a perfect starter engine I would give it a try it's under 200.

If you want a step up from the novarossi 21bf, witch might not be that much faster than your stock engine, go with the novarossi p5xl. You can never go wrong with a P5.

Odonnell motor is really good. I can't vouch for longevity but it just finally broke in completely after a galon and half for me. Crazy power. I like it even better than my speed.
