Any RB Rody modified engine. Novarossis are good...especially the high end ones.

There are lots of great engines available. How much power are you looking for? How much hassle are you willing to deal with? How much are you wanting to spend? In general, you'll be happy with just about any of the rear exhaust engines from the major manufacturers.

Maybe .12 to .24 maybe? Willing to spend around $180 or so.... Very tight budget.

I do not think a .24 will fit on a GT4, you can get Novarossi (Rear Exhuast ones), they are like #1 in Engines (Major one), if you want cheap i heard STS Engines are good and they are around $130-150??

DT-Skyline;

I would say depending on how experienced of a Driver you are.

The MT12, MR12, RB-X12 and TOP 12's are very good and would fit in your budget. More speed/power costs more $$$$.

You would be surprised. A couple of us have had full blown big block .15 and .21 engines in our GT4's. Need a little modifying to fit but they do go in and the car is ballistic.

I have not tried the NS15. However my VoneRR is currently running the RB V15 smallblock. If you think the Black Pixy has too much power then you will want to avoid the smallblock 15's. As far as a good engine goes that is moderately priced, my choices would be the Novarossi NS12S3 (there is a newer RR model of this out so you should be around the $200.00) and the RB Concepts V12 (Also value prices a at approx. $200.00). Both are excellent choices that give you power, tunability, and reliability. These are also good choices for modifications also as they both are pretty conservatively timed and have a lot of hidden power. So in any case either will work for Nitro Sedan.
