Default Best Sedan .12 Motor?

What do you think is the best Sedan .12 engine.

I not just talking about Horsepower. Other factors should be included such as is it easy to tune, does it idle nice, does it have a nice power ban. etc.

My track has no motor rules. 5 port turbos, .15, .18 are legal.

I Have a Mugen novarossi S5. I think the motor is sweet except it's hunger for fuel

Whats your sedan motor of choice?

I Agree. The MT12 that came with my MTX2 is 4 years old and still runs like a champ.

All Nova based engines are good. But the question is how much are you willing to spend? I do agree with everyone as far as the MT-12 being an easy motor to handle. Although keep in mind that the MT-12 Modified by a good motor man can kick as like the Murnan Modified.

I guess it depends what you mean by best: Best for the dollar or no price limit just all in all Best!

I don't live in a world with out price limits
so I still say MT-12
(or X-12)

the D5 from STS is great for the value

i have the X12 and am satisfied with it. However, i would prefer novarossi over RB, because of the looks
