only expecting 3 gallons out of a $270 (reduced price) engine is just downright insane. The engine may be great but with that longevity it is really not worth it.

That's the difference between me and someone else.

If it runs for 7 gals then I'll still run it. I never got more than 4 gallons if that from a Nova motor. I laugh when I hear people talk about rediculous gallons through a motor. Spending money on a new Piston, Sleeve and Rod for one of these motors is STUPID (read close IMHO). Unless your getting that stuff for dirt cheap. A P,S and R setup for any modern race motor is $150.00 on average. The average race motor is $300.00 why would you spend 50% of the cost of a new motor on a worn out one. I've done it before and they never run as good or last as long as a fresh motor.

I'm seriously contemplating buying a new one right now to put in my 8ight as the old V-spec is running perfect so I have a reliable backup in case of catastrophic failure

believe or not, whr i'm at(in asia), the V-Spec goes for abt US$220.
piston/liner is $75 and conrod $25. so to rebuild a V-Spec wld cost $100.
but like you said, why spend half of the price of a new engine to rebuild an old one?

that's why i'm looking to try out a new motor.
budget is arnd $300. wanted to get the JP FX21 off ebay but the vendor wldn't ship overseas...

i might just get the nova plus21-5T, been hearing gd things abt it.
asking my LHS to bring in a 'tuned' version for me, see how it goes.

in the meantime, keeping my options open. that's why i started this thread...
but i'm still skeptical how modded the Werks TL B7 and the Sirio STI are compared to the stock ones.

hmmmm how much to ship me a couple of those $220.00 V-specs to the US??

I don't know what a JP Mod V-spec goes for over there but I drove a Jammin X1CRT with one in it Saturday and it was FAST

I wouldn't really call the new Werks B7 a modded engine. They have just improved on it's design some. No different that the P5 & P5X or RB WS7II or WS7III.

Hi Guys...

Which pipe works better and what's the difference between the OS 2050 pipe and the OS 2060 pipe with an OS VZ-B V-spec engine ?

Thanks in advance...

rdeppen,
i can't get those JP V-Specs over here. i believe they're strictly for the US market, as only Mugen USA distributes them. don't think even europe has it.

if you're int'd in gettin the V-Specs, checkout http://www.singahobby.com/Pricelist/...2006_Part1.pdf
they're my local OS distributors. drop them an email on the V-Specs, see if they can ship it you. btw, sin$350 ~ US$220

SpeedBump57,
thanks for the heads-up on the Werks TeamLine. i guessed as much that they're pretty much stock, save for some changes over the Collari B7.
Unlike the Sirio STI, which i think has some factory modifications.

I'll prob wait for the release of the OSspeed V-Spec and make my decision then on.

Hey Mika,
selamat berpuasa ya!
i've not tried the 2050 pipe, but the 2060 works veri well with the V-Spec.
if you're int'd, i'll get the pipe for you when i go japan after hari raya. abt sin$120 lah. guess who em i eh?

2060 is smoother (3 chamber pipe). 2050 gives more snap (2 chamber pipe). The 2050 works very nicely on the Werks engines too.
