For me the 6.5 was a bit to much motor for my B4. So I run the 7.5 and works great. If you run Lipo's you will need to run additional weight. I run 1 ounce in my B4. You prolly will need to run about 3 ounces in yours.

There are gear charts on teamnovak.com Just add a couple teeth with a sintered rotor and adjust for temp. I used to run a 20-21 in my car with a 5800 (8.5) and bonded rotor.

I saw a big one somewhere that had all the different wings, but I can't find it over there...but 18-20 should be a good place to start with a newer 7.5. You might hit up Steve Weiss in the onroad forum. He's a font of knowledge on all things Novak.
