Default Werks B5 or RB killer9

I race dirt late model and I'm considering two motors Werks B5 or RB Killer9. Both motor are close in price the Killer9 I can't find rpm or hp ratings but I read in RB thread and other places that this is a high performing motor,
I read in the B5 good things and Ron at werks customer service is second to none and the Werks motor runs in the RPM range I need? What pipe would you recomend for oval racing I have a JP1 JP2 and 053 Dynamite but I'm open to getting a pipe.
This is my home track

What are the guys you racing with running. Im an off roader and run the B5 with a 2013. Good motor lots of bottom and mid and a good top when you have a long enough straight away for it to wind out.....

Default k9 eats b5

Maximo is 100% correct his work is second to no one, his ofna jl .21 will suck up a b5 and spit out the parts, even the stock jl, or k9 - same motor, will smoke a b5. maximo can tell you the quality of the jl is excellent

I have a batch of B5's I am working on.. look for a Clockwork B5 video soon !

IMHO if i was looking at stock engines the B5,K9 or Jl are awesome....tho I think I may like the B5's take no prisoners bottom end over the smoother JL and K9..but i tend to like alot of bottom end

Maximo every one else,
Thanks for input, I need my car to get off the corner quicker then the 28 I race and bottom end of the B5 sounds like a winner. The problem is I need a motor by Thursday to break in Friday and race saturday at 11 am. I am going to order a motor?

Randystang, if you think that a stock JL or K9 will and I quote "suck up a B5 and spit out the parts" then I think that you have been drinking a little bit too much of the coolaid lol. Stock to stock the B5 will hold it's own with any motor out there especially against the cheaper taiwaneese engines that you mentioned. Now what happens after a modder like Maximo works his magic on them is another question. He has the ability to alter the performance of engines to suit whatever the specific intended use of the engine is, so then it's like comparing apples to oranges.

I bet, The B5 is a animal of a mill. The price is deceiving.

If you can swing it, I would get a Werks 2013 pipe for it. If not I would think the 053 would be the best out of the ones you listed.
