I really like the P5 but I'm currently running a Fantom FR21 (same as radical 621T) and I can out motor most and still am getting better mileage than my buddies Vspec 2050.

I've never had a P5, but what you're looking for may be a VSpec with a 2060/JP2 pipe.

An RB WS7III is also a great engine, little less fuel mileage maybe, but always run strong.

Go Tech 5port Race very similar to a p5, I had a hot mod p5x and the go tech has more on top with a smoother more linear usable bottom end.

I'm running the Picco EVO 2 P7R .21 in my 8ight T and a 053 pipe. It has great acceleration and plenty of torque IMO. Very punchy engine. Gonna be even more punchy when I take it to ABmods...
