Default NovaMega

Am I reading this correctly the NovaMega SX12 SS 3P - Turbo has 1.8 Hp if this engine has this much Hp why don't I see many of them race over here (Aus), if the NS3 has 1.6 Hp then wouldn't this NovaMega engine be blitzing everything else.
I just had a look at the specs here:
NovaMega SX12 SS 3P - Turbo

Is this right

Sure they are very good!!!!!. Espect same performance as a NS3, and if I'm not wrong they cost a little less then a NS3.

The 3 port non Turbo RACE version (2103RMS) is already discontinued. I don't think there is a Turbo version. Just a difference in the plug.

The one you should be looking for is the 2106MS which is the 3 port Turbo MS version with microcast piston which is based closely on the Novarossi NSR. Apparently very difficult to find at the moment. The performance would be about on par with the NSR. If not better.

For hundred bucks? That's cheap if the engine is still in excellent condition. The 2105TMS is discontinued and it is not with the microcast piston.

Any Nova engine would be competitive. To be honest, I would not know in what condition the engine has been broken in. It could be broken in wrongly and you have a lemon. Worth it or not, you need to check it out for yourself. Sorry.

The TPO5 is a top end pipe. The new TPO6 is the way to go. It offers top end but a little bit more punch out of the hole than the TP05.
