The Sportwerks .21 would be a good choice. Not the most powerful engine out there but reliable.

id get either the following

werks 3 port great motor for the money

go 5 port or 7 port got awsome power and great price at around 209 for the 7 port and 180 for the 5 port.

i hear good things bout the dynamite .21 and the sportwerks both great things

if u can find one a rg.21 from os i think is a great price at 110 if u find one

then i think the best motors but not good price is the c6bb from rb there about 460 or so with pipe.

out of those if money is a big thing then im going for the 5 or 7 port go then it would be the werks.. hope that helps

I have heard nothing but great things about that motor. You also might want to look into the RB S3. I think its rouighly $180.
