I would say go for the Novarossi, but I have to admit, it is not inexpensive.

Default Best 12 5 port engine

I have a Novarossi LS3 12 5 port modified by Fusion Motorsports that is simply amazing. Bought it through Nitro House.
They are not the cheapest engines by far, but power wise, very hard to beat.
On the other hand, I also have a Rex 12 5 port also purchased through Nitro House, that is also very fast, and much cheaper.
But if you are going to race it, look at the Novarossi 12+3C 3 port.
There are two versions, one stock, and one modified.
