Default Chuck,

what you need to look for is the pinch of your piston/sleeve (see if you can push the piston all the way through the sleeve) and if the conrod bushings have play.

Overheating does not necessarily scar you piston/sleeve or causes any other obvious damage

Is it a Taiwan copy (clone) of the Novarossi and claims to have improved performance? Is there any difference than clone CD or DVD? I'm very curious to know.

Taiwan are very famous for DIY engine mod.

I would think all Nova based motors have the same non-turbo (or turbo) heads. If indeed the STS is identical to the Nova based engines, then I would think any Nova based engine head button would fit. I know that RBs, Megas, NRossi, MT-12 have the same head buttons.

the head button on nova engines is different for short rod and long rod design. the short rods are the rs12, x12, new mt12. The old mt12 is the long rod and has a different button. short rod buttons work on the sts.
