B3R is waay easier to tune than the B5R
B3R has more bottom end than the B5R.
B5R feels like it has more top end.

Thanks for the feedback, on my smaller track the b3r might be better. I havenít had any tuning issues with my b5r, but easier is always nice. I love my nova compared to my other engines. Been such a solid performer, only issue Iíve had is the carb wants to slide out of the engine. Iím not sure if the pinch bolt is loosening while driving or whatís going onÖ

Is not that surprising. The B3 is put on the market as a lower budget engine so the port heights are lower, but with that you do get more bottom torque and an easier tune.

and... they left us with zero communication, zero parts, zero support. the employees and all their equipment was liquidated and those people started NOVA, but now we should come back and support them after 3 years of no communication.

Have Bones break them in. These engines have insane pinch... it took mine 2 1/2 gallons to get it up to optimum performance. Do not lean it prematurely...that's probably the reason people are breaking pistons and conrods.
