Depends on nitro % and outside temperature. I use 6tgfb for cool 16% fuel or c7tgfb when it's hot out or with 25% fuel.

You can 'update' a 2016 engine just by changing the piston/liner set.
Blessings Dan,

What the part number for the 2017 piston/liner? Base on the novarossi exploded view I am seeing 08544SB/17 and 08544SB/16 for the 2016 spec. but when searching on the internet I am not finding it. Well only on rc target which is sold out. On Novarossi direct it only says 08544SB. So I am not sure which spec they are referring too. Can u direct me to a website that has the 2017 piston/liner?

Much appreciated

I think if you order from NR direct you’ll get the latest version of the P/L. I would drop them an email to check.

If you are permitted to run a 2 chamber pipe then 9886/41032. If you have to run a 3 chamber pipe then 2015/41032.

Whats the best nova engine for out right power for a GT car? I already have MitoGT 2016 and I m not impress with it. Need something more powerful, I m thinking of getting Mito35 WC (onroad version), will this be good choice? BTW my local races do not have the rules restriction as per ROAR (5port 7mm). As a long as it is .21 size then its legal to be use.

We dont have Capricorn product available locally. Do you know if I can use MitoWC 17 onroad engine for GT? Will this be faster/powerful than my MitoGT 16 engine?

Yes you can run the WC mito in GT without any issues and it will be a bit quicker than the Mito GT5 due to its very nature. It'll have more top end however I wouldn't expect the bottom end to be much better than the GT5. In fact the 9-port WC engine could actually be less powerful at the bottom than the GT5.

I would ask though that the Mito GT5 is a very quick GT engine and we need to see why you aren't particularly happy with it. GT is clutch critical and you have to get a good clutch together in order to unleash the power of the engine. You would run a different setup on a Picco GT1 engine vs a Mito GT5 because the power bands are in different places. Which car/clutch setup are you running. What area of the engine do you feel it is not powerful enough?

What pipe/manifold are you running? If you went to a 9886/41032 combo and put a 9mm restrictor in the engine you'll get more power.

Novarossi also have a 9 port GT engine. Mito 35 Rally 9 which is basically a 9 port version of the GT5.

Hi Dan, I m running the MitoGT in a Cobra GT3.0. Clutch is 4 yellows, xhard spring and steel bell. Currently using 41032 2052 pipe but have used 41032 9886 before this with no apparent difference. Gearing is stock. Fuel 25%. Carb insert is 9mm.

I felt the engine is particularly very soft on accelaration with not that impressive top end either. Honestly it has been good so far actually and maybe its just the limit of this engine. I just want to get a more powerful one since my club does not restrict to ROAR 5port7mm rules, basically I can bolt any 21 engine and use it for race. I just want to know which nova engine is better than my current MitoGT that somebody has hands on experience with it in a GT.

Currently my LHS has Nova Mito WC onroad only but I can get them to order it for me if this Mito 35 Rally 9 is better suited for a GT and definitely faster and powerful than my MitoGT5 16. Have you used this before?
