I have a Spec II O.S Speed and with the O.S T-1040 pipe and manifold, it screams. The 5 port motor would probably be the way to go. Having an engine from new is the best. You dont know what sort of abuse the Spec II has seen.

I am sorry, dude. But, buy used engine is very risky. Many ppl have bad exp. Search the form. I would rather buy a NovaRossi N12

yeah, that is true most of the time. if can, get it secondhand locally, where u can evaluate it or even test it before buying. even new engines depends on luck
