Can't go wrong with either of these, Alpha's are around $210.00 and the Go's are about the same, the Go combo with a pipe sells for around $240.00.

+1 on the GX-5R combo from Rex. A pipe and a engine for around $240!

Just so other people know that might be looking at this thread also. I would take a look at the JS Racing motor for about $230. The motor is fairly new but seems to have great reviews so far and is comparable to the power of $350+ motors. Also for about $200 the WERKS B5 is an awesome budget motor. Another for about $250 is the Novarossi P5.
