Default Which engine is better?

Which engine is better? I have narrowed it down to 2. the Novarossi NSR12 5pt. or the Novamega 5pt. Michael Salven? Which is better? Lasts longer? More durable?

I am not sure if the MS version are already available from the NS base engine, but if it is, it would be a margainly better performer. The MS series is a very mildly modified engine though, and you pay for that MS logo on the heatsink. Best value would definately be the Nova Rossi NSR12. I would expect very similar durability from these two eninges. You really can't go wrong with any of them. As for how long it lasts is really up to you. Treat it well and it will live a very long and productive life...
