Any .12 engine with SG shaft and slide carb should work with your mongoose

Yup, that will be a good one, but it will be considered an outlaw due to the engine being a 5 port.

Hi,
No that will not fit.

The engine must be .12 size with rear exhaust, 3 ports, NO Pull start.

May i suggest a few models that i've ran in my mongoose.

RB Concepts V12
Mega ZX-12
STS D3R


The prices of these engines listed above varies from 135$ -- 235$.

Other models are O.S TZ 3 port, rear exhaust,
Sirio EVO 2

It will fit but its not the most popular choice. But if you just starting out it should fit your need. You'll need to have a starter box. A better choice of engine would be a OS-TZ 3port or the Mega ZX-12 Power Pack which includes the pipe. Good luck!
