I don't think JP is going out of business. I just picked up some parts from Desoto Racing last week.

I only had the JP modded version of a P5. They have good topend, but I just finished building a B3 type Novarossi 3 port. Going to see how well this engine stacks up against the O.S Speed/Ninjas and the Plus 21-4. If it goes well, I might try to build a Novarossi Plus 21 3 port also.

The JP 7 port should scream. I know someone that had the Eagle B-7T Black mod and it ran hard.

blue is sexy!

Have a JP Modded V-Spec: Is a pretty forgiving motor for what it is. If tuned properly, can go 12min on an outdoor, large, loamy, high traction track.

JPMod B5N Mutt: Built mine with a Hot Mod case and head (got new from a buddy), with a Medial Pro carb and backplate, all with a RBMods P5 crank! Man, for WHATEVER reason, it works. Decent mileage (8:30), plenty of bottom (running .9 springs, 17T clutch, Nova 086 pipe [hardcoated..nice], smooth JPMod short header in an 808), and i have chosen to use a 6.5 insert, cutting the EPA to about 75% and tuned this way it is as linear and "supple" as i've used.

long post, short answer: its still a Nova (short of the V-Spec), and "that ain't bad".
