I hear the pricing will be around $330-$350. If it's as fast or faster than the Nova plus .12 then that's a good deal.

I think you will be happy. The modified version is very strong. The engine seems to be very reliable as well. I have almost 2 gallons on my test engine, and it keeps getting faster, and still tight. The engine seems to have similar bottom end to the +12 engines, with more power up top than the +12. The engine revs to 45,000 rpm easily on the dyno. The break in is slow with the engine. Just like the +12.
The Piston/Sleeve/Rod is interchangeable with the +12 engines. The engine also features a 3 needle carb, which I like. The engine has a lowered cooling head. The head button also has the O ring, and the case, and cooling head have the lightening holes drilled like the 353.

Uriah,


do you feel that all of these pipes are performing the same?

I had three, and two were not doing anything, while the third made my 12-3ST scream

I decided to go with the pipe RB recommended. Should be here Wednesday. I was reading the Running-in Procedure and it steps through nine (9) tanks before you begin to tune for performance.

When I am running on the track, tanks 2-8, should I have the body on or off the car? They are not specific. Thanks.

Hi. I have been through more than I care to count. They all seem to perform the same. Did you try them on the same engine? I know they changed the header design slightly just after the pipe was introduced. The short header that used to come with the pipe did not have any fins, now the pipe comes with the 5 fin header. Maybe they are making running changes to pipes too. Maybe changing the baffle holes slightly. I do know the pipe does not perform as good after it is dented from a crash.

I started initial break in of the engine today. It's the only engine I haven't had to restart several times during the first tank. Coupled with the 2630 pipe & the engine set massively rich it took about 60 seconds to drain the tank. I'm going to have to wait till after the weekend before I have the time to get it in the car and begin the heat cycles. I can feel a very large smile about to happen.
