You should mod that shit for mileage.

If someone wants mileage there are dozens of 3 ports on the market that can can make ridiculous runtimes as it is...I am not into detuning a wonderful engine just for mileage... I aim to make better power and RPM first, mileage second.... Not that the mod motors can't make great runtimes if driven responsibly anyways..so to me why bother modding if your not gaining power and RPM....

A lot of people including myself are getting 11+ min. out of the B5, how much more do you want?

And you dont need a 3 port to get 12+ min.

I have been using the K9, good motor but it is to hit and miss with the life span, 2 of my local racers never made the 3 gallon mark. I have 5 on mine and it is still running strong (as a practice motor). I recently switched to the B5 and wow what a difference, imo the B5 has more bottom and mid power then the K9. The B5 fits my drving style better then the K9. Both are good motors for the price.
