Yes, I also noticed with the 20% you do have a larger tuning window compared to 30%. On the higher percentage you can only lean it out so much and overdoing it hurts the engine. I'll save up for the Nova. It would look good in my Mugen. Hows it run with the VR12 plus pipe? I have that now on my car.

the vr12 plus is the pipe..we tried the 2630 but not any real difference and the big bulge tends to get hit or rub.

Sweet so I don't have to buy another one. Well...I would go with one to use with the Nova and one for warm ups.

You need to try the Max or Mega 2602 with this engine

Do you even know who this is? lol I have been busy, I am on vacation so I figure I will use the time to test the NT1 more on med-low grip so I can get that setup sorted out. Remember kids, just because its the off season doesn't mean you can't learn something... Gotta get the car to be fast for the sprint races. We know its up to the task for the enduro *winks*

I've been running the Nova pipe and it seems to be night and day better than the Skyline Pipe. Go 30% Nitro or go home!!

LOL, I can easily keep up with the 8th onroad drivers at my track on 20%. Going with 30% isn't that much faster and in most cases is just as fast as using the 20%.

I have run 16-40% in touring car. There is small gains to be had.. but I tended to go through conrods more w/ 40%(not throwing, just bushing wear). I am back to running 30% for most events. It also depends on the fuel boys... Some burn cleaner, some have a lil more hp, some just suck lol. With some hot mods running more nitro % can allow you to run colder plugs and have the engine idle reasonably... lord knows I have a couple 40% only engines...
