They are great motors. A great pipe, clutch setup, 30% fuel n plug will make the motor shine. I wonder how much they are going for nowadays.

The 5 port modified one or it was a 3 port is just shy of power to the NS12 so it has about 1.45 or more HP. Regardless this is a great motor to use for the track and is on par with the OS .12 TZ and other mid range engines.

I wouldnt care. I still run one with the Palmaris BRB P/S set. They work far better than most other engines in our climate. I would just be happy if I could find a new one for sale. For some reason, every 11mm crankshaft on the market just disappeared after the NS12 came out.
