Well that sounds like good news as I am having horrable fuel consumption.

MTX4 powered by NovaRossi NS12 TS1 and I think I am lucky if I am getting 5 mins.

Taking away pressure will also give a hotter engine.

With your Novarossi motor, the pressure chamber will not do much to improve milage. The NS motors require a little more fuel tubeing. I get 5 min 30 sec with mine. The best thing I did was go to the Novarossi power 12 SCT. I can get over 6 min with mine. Just add a little more fuel tubing for the NS.
Or!!
use the pressure vessel as a big ass fuel container! I don't use them on my small blocks only big blocks.

Are we talking about the Mugen boost chamber or something like the Orion CPD?

I want a mugen boost chamber with fins for cooling like the new nova one

The CPD is real nice but as someone said, more parts to break/maintain

here's another new pressure regulator and exhaust gas coolant, whats nice about this one is check out the check valve on it, I haven't seen that on any of the other ones....[URL="http://rbmods.net/rbshop/index.php?target=products&product_id=151"]
