Now the big question is....

WHAT ENGINE SHOULD I GET!!!!

I am so stuck with this one. There are just so many nice engines on the market these days....

Fantom FR27
Novarossi 28
RB TM728
WASP 28
WASP 26
XTM 247 Pro

The list goes on!!

Any advice would be good.

Husky, FR27....what are your thoughts??

The fantom 27 is a sweet engine. The novarossi 28 would be something different to try
. The fantom is heaps better than the wasp and when rebuilt time comes i can chuck the 28 piston and sleeve in

Husky,

The Nova 28 is on Ebay for $265usd where as the RB TM728 us around $300usd, I think.

I am hanging to get the beast now!!

I paid for EMS so it should be here by the end of the week.

Don't know about the 'stats' mate... but most of the people who have driven one in the EK4 seem to write pretty good reviews on the grunt it has... I ain't after a savvy that will do 70 KPH... I want sheer torque!
