+1 on the Eb Mods Js Racing Engine, super smooth engine, with cool running temps, great run time, easy to tune. Be sure to try out the Ascendancy Racing Clutch, the 32mm one is for the Kyosho. The clutch really allows you to transfer all the power of the engine to the ground, with a bunch of wheel spin, it will be the last clutch you run. You can take a look at the clutch here at this website http://tkocompetitiondev.com/index.php?cPath=38_126

RevRacer = Nice fuel/air pressure line layout.. I was debating gluing some line holders like that... I also like the stealth look too

No, sure i think the O.S is a grate engine and i don't really have a budget either but when i hear people saying that the js has the same power, runtime and life as the speed i think if would be interesting to try. Still i regard both the speed and the nova as "safe cards" but i think it's interesting to try something that half of my club isn't running. But the speed sure is nice

after running just about every engine out there i got the new Sirio STI Evo4 factory tuned + mod and this thing is bad as hell., i can out run any mod engine without any problem., it has insane mid & top end using an 053 pipe.

Hello!
My sirio blew today after a bearing failure so i ended up ordering a Nova +4 since i have a race this weekend. So, thanks for all the tips, a +4 team and a 9901 to be correct .

How do i brake in this engine the best way? heat cycle or the method specified in the manual?

Talk to Houston at HES he will walk you through it like he did for me on both of my plus 4's. He no doubt has it down to a science
