T-1050SC L52 (which is supposedly suited to the lower rev range) or a Novarossi 51610. Any suggestions? I'm happy to hear other brand/pipe suggestions to go with my engine as well.

Cheers,
Mick
We recommend using header 41615 and pipe 51615.

Default Novarossi*Live Range Strum .12 Touring engine

Has anyone tried this motor? Would you recommended it for a novice, on road touring?

Yes, that engine is suitable for your application. It'll be easy to set and have plenty of power for a novice! Good Luck.

No I don't think so. It has a different crank pin diameter if I remember correctly?

Yes, all R series rods are interchangeable. They keep them updated with running changes. I would go for an R7 - 14

The Sturm is previous known as the N12T1. It is no winner on large races but in the hands of an advanced driver it can differ a 0,2 up to 0.4 second a lap compared with the fastest motors.
For sure for a clubracer an ideal motor.

I believe so, it is based (bore/stroke and crank diameter) on the older motors but you can never tell with Novarossi.

Looking forward to hitting the black stuff with this engine bolted into my new Mugen MTX6 Tourer

Finally started to get some fuel through my engine, fired up quite easily after pre-heating, and wow, this engine seems to be coming alive very quickly, a few more tanks and I reckon its track time, but so far very impressed with this little beasty .12 keep-on.
