get the NS12 engine if it is available at your LHS. NS is far more superior then RS12 but you need to pay a bit more for the NS.

Manti,

I'm not so sure about "far superior".

I saw a couple of NS running and although they are fast, they are not THAT much faster than a good RS

be fair, you need to compare ordinary NS vs ordinary RS, not a good RS !

Default Hmmmmm!

I think I would have to agree with Stefan on this one! Far superior is a little over kill! The NS does have a slight edge over the RS. And for the price difference I would take the RS, a cold brewski and a half hour with my dremal tool

When I say it popped I mean that the piston shattered, but it later turned out that the idiot who owned it B4 try 2 do a bit of modifying himself 2 the piston, he tryed to lighten it and made the walls 2 thin ( the engine was already a JP modifyed). But anyway the S1 are still good but not as strong as an S3 which I would get.

Hope this post made sence aznxlionhrt
