Lewis,

I would get a Novarossi P5X and a top-end pipe like the NR 9886, MSR 1005, or even an OFNA 086.

Carolinasrc has a great deal going on now with orders over $200. $25 off!!!!

Carolinsasrc.com P5X

They have both the P5x and the Ninja in stock.

get an os v-spec best 3 port you can buy will beat alot of engines on the market. but other wise the novarossies are ment to be good. ive seen the ninja too i would compare that to the v-spec top engine.

Well, I guess that only you can make the final decision. All you will get is opinions. There are a lot of good engines out there and it makes enging choice very difficult. I have not run a Ninja yet, but I hear that they have a very smooth powerband.

Do you like your P5X? What do you not like, or would you want different in your next motor? Maybe this will help get some answers.

Good luck

i have a p5x hot mod and its fast but the powerband is horrible, worst i have ever driven, it wasn't very awe inspiring on top end as well i ran it with a jp-2 pipe.

i will not mention what engine i am running now because i don't want to hear you guys say i am spamming, but if you would like to know check my sig. i would take that engine over my rossi any day
