Yes.

Searching with google to some partnumbers from the exploded view it is a C6 crankshaft and a C3 P/S set. Looks to me they want to get rid of some old stuff....

Thanks Roelof

I might give this engine a try, the old 7 port Novas have lots of torque, they dont rev as hard as the current line but still a very powerful and reliable engines, price is fantanstic

Last week I did get a brandnew REX S7TC (in exchange of a bottle of Whiskey), it is a model of 15 years ago. I must say I do mis a lot of power in that engine, 3 years ago I did get a Nova 2000-8p from around that same time (1993) and that engine did run awesome compared to most current engines.

Regarding this engine, I think the combination of the C3 set and C6 crankshaft it can't go wrong.

If I may ask, what is the actual price ?

My all time favorite motors are still the R1 based motors and RB C4-C5's. Still very competitive and reliable.

Default Old rb

I bought a c3 collari mod off here and it's in like new condition. I ran it the other day and I honestly think it's making more power than some of the newer engines.
