Since the OS line of Vspecs are not going to be made anymore, I would be worried about parts for the speed. so would have to pick the nova

The 21-7FMS would be a better comparison to a speed.

the nova WIILL last longer than a vspec +4 or toro.... but nova motors are pipe/header sensitive... once you find the right combo you will like it im sure

if some one says the toro is soft on the bottom, is possibly because of the pipe/header combo

vspec based motors i have not seen to be that sensitive with pipes/headers
