no big difference between 5 and 3 port tuning wise. umm just make sure to use a heatgun and heat up the motor first to expand all the metals before your first startup. less stress on that conrod.

5-ports are harder to tune. Just be sure you got the right amount of shims and the right heat glow-plug. A medium heat plug should work and like .3 MM of shim

That is not true , 3 and 5 ports are equally the same in tuning wise
