Default what nova engines work with the 086 or re11??

just curious. Want to get a nova engine but this is the pipes i have right now. I know the n21bf works with it. But what about the plus 4, toro nerro, fms, p5 etc.

really what to try nova out.

but i don't want to spend half a grand with a new pipe.

if not looks like i might try the eb mods js or a picco. I know they run with the 086.

of course o.s. engines run with these pipes but i have several.

trinity extech? Werks?

i wouldnt reccomend using the RE11 on Nova engines
I tried it on my P5 and my 821B and it sucked and made my engines run hot before making any power

which is odd cause the re11 is the 2050 copy right? I ran an os 2050 on my p5(hotmodd) and it made stupid power running only around 230

I ran an 086 on my Toro once. It ran great but was very finicky with tune. I think you would be most impressed with the +4. I love mine, and if I had to do it over again would have got it instead of the Toro for last year's mill.

so are you saying the torro is hard to tune? or hard to tune with the 086?

I have never had a nova engine but are they hard to tune in general? Is the plus 4 a tame motor? What would you compare it too?

Toro is a great motor I ran one last yr, but this year I'm running a p5, has more bottom for clearing short run up jumps and has a great top on a 086 pipeset. The toro is definitely sweet but I never even used the top end it rev's to the moon. Decent price difference between the two, me personally I'd go with a p5. I ran the 053 on the toro as well.

Toro was hard to tune w/ the 086. And Nova's are actually pretty easy to tune. I wouldn't say the +4 is more tame than the Toro. Is definitely smoother but has all the grunt you need if you want it.

How long does the crank in a Vspec last?
You're comparing apples to oranges when talking about quality. Based off what I've seen, OS isn't in the same league as Nova. There's way too many reports of cranks failing in 3 to 6 gallons for me to ever consider an OS. It almost makes me want to compare OS to the 1st gen Go motors. And I used to love OS motors, I was running them 10 years ago.
