    GO TECH .21 3p - 5p - 7p race engine what would you choose and why or why not.

    Looking for anybody running any or all of these engines for 3 or more months. List your experiences with any of the 3 engines.
    Wisdom is only as good as the person you give it to.

    RE: GO TECH .21 3p - 5p - 7p race engine what would you choose and why or why not.

    i run the 5 port in my truggy and the 7 port in my buggy.... i honestly believe these mills are the best bang for buck you will find... run them with the 2047 pipe and you'll be happy as a pig in ***** dont think you will find anyone that will say anything bad about them dude...
    Life is all about ass,Your either coverin it,Kissin it,bustin it,kickin it,tryin to get a piece of it,or just behavin like 1

    i have no expirience with the 3 and 5 port, but i run the 7 port with rb 2045 pipe and all i can say it's the fastest engine on the track, and reliable.
    i also want to know how the 3 port compare to the 7.

    I agree. The 7 port is hard to beat for the money

    It really depends on the tracks you run on. The 5 port will be great on tight/technical tracks. the 7 port good on high speed tracks with a less technical layout. And the 3 port R will be pretty good on either.

    That kinda makes no sense...
    In theory,
    3 port = more low end power=good for tight technical tracks
    5 port = compromise
    7 port = more top end power= good for long high speed tracks

    the 3 port R spec has a more linear power band then the 5 port. It has around the same bottom end as the 5 but a little more top end and its easier to drive.

    the 3 port seems to be unavailble everywhere. where can i get one?

    Please explain
    I'll just give you the example of the nova Plus 21-5 vs Plus 21-7 same engine different sleeve if you ever had both of them side by side you would see the difference...
    Go may have developed their 3 port in a very different direction in relation to the 5 and 7 But in "Theory" apples to apples,

    RE: GO TECH .21 3p - 5p - 7p race engine what would you choose and why or why not.

    I was just saying that the number of ports have nothing to do with power when it comes to designing an engine. 7 ports does not automatically produce more power than 3.

    Now in this specific case (Go engines) it might vvery well be that they designed the engines in a way the 3 port would make less power than a 7 port.

    I thought the number of ports help to dictate how the power band worked,
    Like the 3 port created its highest torque/hp at a lower RPM

    and a 7 torque/hp curve was more towards the higher rpm range

    And that higher ported engines use more gas.

    Any of this true?

    Not true at all. Everyting depends on the port timing and size, not the number of ports.

    It's a way to control how the fresh fuel mixture flows in the cylinder. It's also a good idea to break up a very wide port in two or more parts to give the piston support. If the port is too wide the piston can actually tilt and catch the edge of a port.

    So.. the higher ports produces a better fuel mixture?

    I have noticed higher ports seem to rev a little higher

    No, but the designer will have more control of where and how it enters the cylinder.

    So how do you decide what to buy 5 or 7 port?

    How I decide!?

    I don't know. If the manuf says one engine has more bottom end and that's what I need then I buy that.

    RE: GO TECH .21 3p - 5p - 7p race engine what would you choose and why or why not.

    The Go tech 3 port R Spec is a new design. It is comparable to a V-spec With a smooth powerband and not as much high speed as the 7 port. Now the 3 port R shouldnt be confused with the Go tech 3 port sport which follows the general rule of thumb Less ports = more bottom end.

    Email this guy he can set you up with the 3 port R spec

    The number of ports and their placement is also used by engine designers to utilise the 'loop scavenge' effect in 2-stroke motors.
