I have one of these NS12S3 Novarossi engines. It has the turbo plug in it. I am looking to get a standard head button for it but can't seam to find one. Any idea's would be great thanks.
Why do you want a standard plug? Turbo 3 ports are ROAR legal now.

Nothing a gearing change won't fix. I have the RB in my MTX-3 and it has a loooong powerband. That individual you saw just needed to go taller on his second gear. I think the engine's are very close if geared properly.

Thanks Terry, You just made up my mind! I was not aware that the 3 port turbo was roar legal. Now to find a new turbo button instead, being mine is stripped.

I wouldn't reccomend the 3port Rody for ROAR racing, first of all I'm not sure of the port mods Rody did, so it may not be ROAR legal anyway, second of all you'll get a lot better fuel mileage from the stock 3 port and it has plenty of power for a 45 to 1 hour main.

I also have the 5 port Rody for outlaw racing. Yes it is insane fast

Maybe. The motor was also being tuned by Pat Fox that day. I don't know if it was also massaged. That was the last V12 I've ever seen at my track since then. Everybody has NS3's

Default Tuning turbo plug vs. std

My engines are all very new, 2 of them hardly broken in, and the other 2 with only about 4 or 5 tanks through them. So far my experience is that turbo plugs are definitely more difficult to tune than normal ones. Also normal plugs start easier.

This doesn't mean that turbos are worst... just more sensitive to weather/climate changes

I have 2 normal plug engines and 2 turbos, the normal plug ones seem more like a plug'n play thing wince the others require fine tuning every day
