Default difference between nova plus 4 and ninja jx21?

I have ran ninja's for the past year. I am going to get another engine and i always here about nova, so i am considering the plus 4 and torro nerro (mainly the plus 4)

It's hard for me to switch because i have 2 ninjas, a vspec and alot of parts for them.

But i want something different.

Yes the werks b5 is up there too.

but mainly i would like to know the differences between the ninja and plus 4, so i can better judge what i would be getting (how hard is it to tune, power, fuel efficiency, low end, top end, longevity etc)

Any help would be appreciated. Thanx in advance.

harder to tune ? no
different to tune? yes

smoother than the ninja , easier to drive . the ninja is a very nice engine and i wouldnt hesitate to run one if i didnt run nova engines

Like Monty said the Novarossi is a so much smoother then the ninja and the nova plus 4 get a lot better runtime. I started with a ninja last year and and made the switch to the nova plus 4 and havent looked back. Im getting about 11-1/2 mins to 12 mins per tank and i never got that with the ninja maybe 8-1/2 to 9 mins
