Default sirio .21

From some of the postings and how sirio puts together the spec of their engines on paper, I am more inclined to think they are more of marketing company.
Moreover, I seriously don't think much of the AAC stuff, it's all gimmick.

I'll stick with the Novarossi-based engines.

Sirio are Novarossi engines. They are designed by the son of the late Mr Rossi (Novarossi) whom now runs the business.

Marketing or not, the 12 size 3 ports are quite impressive. I seriously don't think much of AAC too! But gimmick or not I've yet to find out.

Novarssis are the best engines around, just want to try something different.

I dont care much aboutthe aac stuff either, I just know the .12 and the .21 make much higher priced novarossi owners pissed when I run them. Kinda like when a 50k Corvette z06 outruns a 300k ferrari...It happens...and the vette is still a gr8 car. Not as plush, No handmade stuff, But still faster. Which is what matters.

Don't bother on the .12. my experinece, 4 of the 5 that I tuned, or tried, had problem on the cab. can fix it by using novarossi cab a straight fit but what for!

Novarossi is very reliable. Paid a little more, but well worth it.

my 2 cents

Yeah, there was a family feud years ago between 2 of the brothers and one of them decided he was setting up on his own - hence novarossi (new rossi). But I am nearly sure I read that it was the son who established Sirio as a second line. It is possible it could have been the third brother. But I know the son of the Novarossi Rossi is now in charge of the company due to the death of the man himself.
