I currently use the Alpha abi 3-port and absolutely love it. They idle forever and don't die from loading up easily. It's a very reliable engine.

I would also check out the CRF alpha line.

The good thing about these engines is that you only need one pipe for all conditions.

the crf alpha line hands down. It has increased runtime and has higher quality materials. I think they get like 11-12 mins on a tank.
