Yep. B6 is designed to be a smoother engine. More controllable in a buggy and it does get a bit better mileage.

The 21 JL is a great engine. At $175 makes it even better. Fast on the bottom and top.

I have owned them all OS Speed, RB S3 & S5, Nova 21-4 and N21R-BF, Jammin JPX And the Reedy 121VR

For the money the JL21 is the best.

This werks B5 and B6 where made around the 2013 and 2057 pipes. This engines have so much power that almost any pipe will do the job but you get the must out of them with the 2 pipes I mention. GL

Odonnell SS .21

Keeps up with any engine including speeds, ninja's, etc.

It is about $200, unless you go with deals thru Tower, and you can get one for less.

I highly recommend it.
