yes,

the T means the engine is "turbo" ifmar legal (not allowed by EFRA), the crankshaft scoop protrudes in the intake tunnel which is bigger than the efra legal version......

these are the differences.......

nova based IDM engines arent made anymore...for at least 2 years now.
If you can find a engine, you can expect to see a modified sleeve and having a buggy crackshaft in youre onroad engine.
Because of the buggy crankshaft they have some awesome low end torque, despite there top speed.
These engines are no screamers!

This is a good engine for tight and technical tracks, IF you could find a new one!

Preheat the engine with a hairdryer or a heat gun and then try to start. That should loosen the tight fight a bit and you should be able to start w/o any problems. That is the way I do it, and it works. Have fun.

Take out the plug and preheat the engine with a hairdrier to 150Deg F. Put a dash of 3 in 1 oil in the cylinder and turn over on the box for 2 mins. This is to fush out all the crap that might be there after iot was put together

Replace the plug and preheat again to 150 at least and start.

For running in let the engine idle for one tank and keep checking the temp. You need to keep the temp high or the engine will wear out and not in! Keep the hairdrier on the engine during the first couple of tanks at idle.

My mate has the same engine and has ran it in at temp and has used it for 3 meetings and its still tight at TDC without the plug!!!!
