Well, in my opinion, the best engine for it would be the one that comes with a mugen mbx5t built around it

It really depends on what you are doing: Racing, bashing, or both? Is fuel economy going to be important? If racing, is your track tight or open?

I am using a mach 427 and am very happy with it.
