Default Good engine for $200 or less.......

Hello, I have read all kinds of treads on engines so I have looked. I know I would love to have an O.S. engine but I just can't aford it right now. I have the losi 8ight stock mach 427 in my buggy now but I am looking for something better. I got my daughter an 8ight 1.0 roller and I put a mach 2 .21 with a dynamite 053 pipe on it and once someone helped me tune on it man it was awesome and it kept a good tune all day. The mach 427 was nothing but a bear all day. So now it's time to get a diff engine. I have read where some engines are easier to tune than others so until I can learn to tune better the easier the better, if the is a such engine.
The 3 that I'm looking at right now are the

Dynamite mach 2 .21
Dynamite Platinum .21XP
Novarossi N21BF Limited Edition .21

and I will probably put a Dynamite 053 or the 086 on it.

The .21XP has 3 carb needles so I'm not sure if I should mess with that or not. I think someone told me before that if the motor has more ports it is a little easier to tune. Now I don't know if this is true or not .

If you guys could help me out any, I would be very thankful.

Novarossi N21BF or RB junior 9 will both be easy to tune and last a long time with more power then your mach 427.

Can't go wrong with a B5. I had a Dyn XP .21 and yes it is easy to tune but the B5 kills it on power and fuel and is easy to tune.

I have heard that the Werks engines are pretty good. Maybe I'll look into that B5 engine.

I have to do something, my daughter won't let me live it down that she beat me. LOL!!

I have ran alot of engines over the last 4 years. Everything from speeds to go techs. I will have to say the best bang for the buck I have ran to date is the Odonnell SS .21. The engine just flat out rips! Super smooth power and more then enough for any truck or buggy. I have about a gallon through mine so far and the engine is still tight. I'm getting about 9 mins on a indoor track with alot of wheelspin and a 086 pipe. Can't wait till it drops it's nuts and I can start tuning for a little more milage. I am VERY impressed to so the least. My second economy motor would be the werks B5. Hope this helps.
