Good plan, putting a 3.5 cc off road engine in a mtx-4.
If you don't know what your talking about don't post anything

If you wan't to spend that kind of money then you should go for a nova based engine(like you said yourself).
A normal novarossi or a jp would be very good. I use a jp stock engine which is fast and really reliable, it's also a fairly cheap engine. The extra money you pay for the mod version isn't worth it.
You're better off using that extra money for a couple of pipes and a high quality fuel.

The novarossi 12-3 plus is also a fast one, a lot of torque because it's a long stroke, so if you run on a small and technical track this is a good one.

Since the MTX-4 is Mugens 200mm Touring car, he is looking for a .12 engine.

Whoops, my mistake.....people make them from time to time. I meant to post this one:

V 12

This is a forum designed for Q&A, not a derrogatory comment forum, please try to refrain from slamming peeps from a small error. I believe T.Thomas handled the situation in a way you should have.

Back on-topic... the Novarossi is a great choice also, I have had nothing but great results from RB motors and either of the two would suit you well and will be money well spent, and when tuned properly will last you a long time. Like above mentioned, your track will help you decide on your motor.

Sirios and novarossi .12s are excellent engines. i myself would probably get a Sirio Evo 3 STI 5 port turbo, then have it modded.

Edit: a Orion Wasp Rev .12 would be a good choice as well

Id suggest a look at what is popular or supported at your local track and hobby shop and make a decision from there.
Most motors available are good ,you have choice ,go with Novarossi ,Axemotorrossi ,JP,RB,Sirio,MaxPower,Orion CRF,ninja.....list goes on.
Important to look at support as mentioned above.

The Sirio evo 3 sti is plenty fast stock....finished 6 overall at GlC with bone stock STI...motor has a great powerband and loads of bottom and very easy to tune just my opinion
