I use a Max Power SL3 Engine. Based on the Novarossi SL3 this engine is hand ported by Massamo Fantini and runs extreamly good. I have had this engine for a couple of months now and ever since i have had it i have had no problems at all with it, and it has awesome power! Good Luck!

Regards, Ryan

i think you may have better luck and fun with a 3 port
and 5 ports are not legal if that matters to you
out of the 2 you said sirio i think is a little better.
