Do all 3 port .12 turbo engines have a replacement standard head?

Is there any web sites where I can find out what engines are Roar legal?

My Nova Rossi Rs12S1 engine just blew up, I am looking for a replacement ROar legal engine that delivers the best performance. Any recommendations?
I have an X12....if ppl say non turbo engine will never be as fast as turbo engine....this engine will turn their head...not cheap, $269 big one, probably the most expensive non turbo non mod engine on the market, but worth every single $....

P.S....I think the most recent ROAR national just allow all 3 port can be MODIFIED as well....they are now LEGAL.....HARA was running MAXY mod and there were plenty of Nova MAX, JP and Rody at Ohio the last weekend.

Anyone ever drill another set of shock hole inside the front shock tower? FT NTC3's rear shock tower (V2 rear shock tower) has a set of hole which mount the shock sloper than front (the inner-est hole in front = middle hole in V2). Just wonder if anyone every try it, and how it affect the driving character?

Or.. everyone using middle hole on V2 rear shock tower (well, at least that's what Barry's setup said for 2004 Vegas)

Interesting, we have debating that here for awhile, from what I know, AE stated in the past that there was no gain from using it. In my eyes, a 2 tooth gain top end would be sweet. I can only imagine the top end speed I could get with my ps12. Alot of room for adjustments too. Probably my next adventure.

Hey BB, I have used them in the past. They work well, but make sure you are not bashing with them, pebbles will mess them up( don't ask me how I know). I mainly used the 55 tooth.

Rear shock more incline than front doesn't cause any strange driving character?

The reason I as this is because I never try rear more incline than front, only rear more vertical than front.

I think the more inclined the shock is mounted, the softer the suspension is. If the rear shock is mounted more inclined, rear traction increases.

Does anyone know which engine performs better , the Mugen X12 or the RB concept V12 415?

The Richey RTU would be faster than either of those.

The V12 is a solid performer, havent tried the Mugen.

I race alot of moddified engines. The Richeys has the most power I have ever seen. Dennis done me a couple evo2 siro engines as a anti trinity deal. Its the fastest engine I have ever used in the 6 years of racing.
This sirio will pull all the rody and jp mods turbo 3 and 5 port engines at our track.
If the RD/Richeys have the same or more power than his hand modds they will be the best engines on the market to the general public. BB

Swen hows it going?? Long time no talk!!
