Ducati998;

Sure will, saw one at the Track last night. Just need the Rear exhaust Header and maybe the NTC3 boys can tell you if anything else is needed.

Boomer you listening?

Have several engines to put on my cars, one combination is NTC3 with Sirio TRP.

The only glitch that I've found is my Sirio is one of the first units and come with the crank threads a little longer than needed and forced me to use a countersunk screw to assemble the clutch bell to the crank.

Engine is very durable and easy to tune (responds very well to carb adjustments). I won't lie to you. Isn't as powerful as a modified engine, but performs very well, very reliable and quick.

Got an 3 hours endurance with my NTC3 and performed flawless (all two). Ended on third position.

the SG is the better style to use, it provides more support for the clutchbell, etc...

Definately. My first RB was the standard shaft version. I ordered the SG shaft version but they sent the wrong one. I decided to just keep it and boy was that a mistake.

Going down the main straight and next thing the flywheel and clutch left the car. I thought the pilot shaft had come loose but when I looked it had sheared off right inside the case. Had to tap it to get the stud out.

If you plan on modding your engine be sure to use an SG shaft. The Pilot can't stick the power of a fully modded engine.
