a modded rb engine by Rody is around 320. I think the hp rating is about 1.4-1.5

hello the website for the rb engines is www.rbproducts.com,the engine is the rody modified x12 series not to be confused with the new v12 series,rb doesn't post the hp ratings instead they use a star system ,the more stars the engine has the more powerfull it is,my engine has 9 out of 9 stars ,as far as modifications Smeltz modified even further,so my best guess will be 11 stars (just a guess),price wise the engine is about $430.
I got 2 from unlimited hobbies but as far as i know they are hard to get,(few units are imported every month),tuning is not hard but remember i only use it for dragracing,3 seconds and im done with it,if anyone is interested i have one for sale that im not using,well i hope this helps answer any question u guys had(just my 2 cents)

well, i have the OS Turbo in my R40 and its fast. BUT I just put the NS12S5 in and WOW. I am on about the 8th tank and it is way way faster than the OS.

It is scary fast and I only have it running 215. Holy moly this engine is awesome.

Give it another 8 tanks, you will have a totally different perspective on the new NS engine! you will get about the same power but your engine will be running about 185 or so then you can start leaning it back to 215, now that's insane power!

after you get to that point the next engine you might want to consider is getting the Vmax, this is a beast! top end is alittle bit better then the NS5, but bottom and mid range is almost as powerful as those non modified 21 size engine(meaning those 8th scales)

Good luck

I thought is was something like NSR12 or NS12R... Yes, new piston apparently. Haven't seen it though.
