How much money are you willing to spend? What do you need it for and does it have to be ROAR legal ?

Maybe the best of the .12 engines for the moment is the Novarossi NS 12 5 port engine. But you can also buy a sirio or a mugen engine and give it to a good engine tuner do do some work on it.

From my experience, the Nova Mega 5 port MS is a beast.
Only draw back are the really expensive spare parts.

I have not (and will not) checked the new Nova Rossi NS and the Nova Max.

IMHO, the prices for these are simply outrageous.

My vote is for the STS mt12 3 port legal engine. Mine was cheap and it runs great in my nrs4 2. Nice power and it doesn't stall or do stupid crap.
