O.S. engines are known for easier to tune and reliability (able to hold tune). The Novarossi is easy to tune also. Both engines will offer life longevity as long as you don't run them lean.

IMHO, don't even bother with the boost bottle. Some claim it makes throttle response more smooth.

I run mt12 and rb x12. I used novarossi and OS (cv, cvr) before. My son the OS 12TR. I don't have any experience with the Rossi engine but I also heard they are a harder engine to tune.

I believe that the Fantoms offer good high rpm for the price. To me both the OS TR and the Fantom are both good mid to high rpm engines but lacks to low end.

I like the RB engines. They offer a threaded crank for use in the RS4.
