Questions?? Need help, nitro engine

Hi, I'm new to this site. I just need some help with what engine would go well with my modded LST2. My mach 427 is 4 years old now & looking for
something with even more power than the 427 ever had. I have seen the O.S .30vg I know its a larger engine so it should hove more power, But is it a good engine or is there better choices. Has to be reliable & easy to tune. Thanks

I just replaced my Mach427 with a BigRed .28. It's got some great power. It's on the cheaper side too.

Thanks for that, I,ve seen the BigRed .28 engine, I thought it would be more
powerful than my 427 LST2 engine. But I'm happy to spend big money on a
engine that would put real go in my truck!!. Just not sure what engine would do best. I've got one chance to get right!. As you know it,s not light.
