I can't comment on the issues with the D5 cause I haven't run one.

I will say though in all fairness that all engines including novas have problems.This is not to excuse any problem that there might/might not be with the D5 but to make a point that if you have a problem with a nova or sirio you won't find any of there factory workers on a forum to help you with it.

Without being blind though,this also benefits STS to have Dino help out it's all part of PR and customer service.

I always believe a problem can get resolved easier and quicker if the atmosphere you are working in is hospitable and enjoyable not hostile on either side.

you can satisfy some of people all the time, you can satisfy all the people some of the time, but you can never satisfy all the people all the time. and some people just cannot be satisfied no matter what.

i am happy with the D5, the overall quality is good, except the con. rod. the two con. rods i have has chamfer cuts on the two holes and the chamfers were cut off centered and a bit too deep in my opinion. wondering why STS cut such a deep chamfers there ? one of the con. rod has the oil hole drilled in the wrong place, about 0.5mm from where it should be. QC, QC, QC !!!!

break in take a while longer, i guess the piston and sleeve fitting is a bit tighter than others. performance is acceptable, very powerful bottom and mid, top is a bit sloppy, may play with the gearings and/or pipes and see if it helps.

a very good engine for its price, now just let see how long it will last.

By the way,this afternoon I went to track and tuning the D5 engine for a customer.Because he never tune it well and want to change a new one.I checked all the internal parts and found there is no any wrong.So I thought the problem is on tuning.I drove about 30km to the track and tuned the engine for him because I do care.Let me tall you what I do.

First I found his engine is easy to die out on low-mid revs.His car is LD3 with RDLogic pipe.As my experience with this RDLogic pipe for NTC3/LD3,I made the pressure-line about 27cm.It's better now but still easy to die out.

Then I rich the low-speed needle for cooling and tuning the 2-speed for him.Because its 2-speed is too fast and make him feel that there is no punch,so he leaned the low-speed needle very much.I make the low-speed needle about 5 turn out,and check his car carefully.I found his throttle can't open fully,asking him to adjust the radio system.Also put 2x o-rings under the fuel tank for him to reduce shock.Now the car was better and better,but when he stay for a while and full throttle suddenly the engine still die out.

The last step I decided to advance the ignition timing.I take out 0.2mm head shim,only keep the 0.3mm silver head shim.Well,everything is perfect now.It seems D5 requires lesser head shims.The engine is very fast(250F).Never die out no matter how he play and has stable idle.I can see the smile on his face now,but you know what?I'm happier than him.Your smile is mine smile.

Maybe I should fly to LA to tune the engines for you.My sister lives in Alhambra.
Dino,

I took the 0.2 mm shim out of smarty's engine and replaced it with a 0.1mm, so total shim thickness is 0.4 mm.

I did this because the engine never got up to temp at first.

BTW, he's running it in a MTX3 with a RD Logics outlaw turbo pipe.
