How much do you want to spend and how fast do you want to be?

If you are good enough to compete for A main wins, give Uriah Murnan a ring and get one of his modified Nova 35+21's or a Flash.

If you think you are pretty good and want to be competitive but don't have that much money, A Nova Kangaroo (R1WCS something something) is a great motor for less money.

If you're just starting out, the 5 or 7 port Nova budget motor is a great deal.

As for pipe, 2015 for good power and mileage with a short, conical header.

Nova is always a great choice.

I also like the OS Engine .21XZ-R On-road ABC Engine with 21M Carburetor

The Kangaroo Nova 7port is the current national champion and is a great price.

I did some testing with a Cox 049 last week and went 18.8XX in the main with it. So just get a few of those and pick out the best one and let her rip!
