Id have to go with a p5 for wicked bottom and midrange. RBwS7II for smoking top end. But all around the o.s V-spec is hard to beat. I think you can pick up a P5 for around 250.00
any of these should get you 4 gallons of running.

most of the good quality engines can be pinched after several gallons and still run strong. Depending on how lean or hot you run it. you can usually tell when they start to loose some compression.

Try a Collari B7. At $230 is a great deal.
