Default Novarossi REX RER12S5 TURBO

Hi guys,

Can you please tell if this is a good engine? Hows it compare with the NSR 5 or the NovaMax 3 port? Anyone have experience with it?

Thanks

Sami

as the matter of fact, i currently running a NS5 5 port , it's i believe 1.6 hp @42000 RPM...a killer engine indeed. A NS3 port will run you about $250 +- if you get a new Rex version of NS5 for $230 i will take it in a heart beat.

Just the heads and the crankcase. There is nothing different internal wise.

Do you have any TOP TSR12S5 engines?
I know they're the same engine.
I just prefer the black head.
