Default Buying new engine.

I m planning to buy a new engine, so pls advice me on which one to choose. It has to be 5 port turbo outlaw type. So far I ve only have experience with Novarossi S5 and OS TR engines and don't mind to try another brand engine.

I already have a JP S5 and I think it is not more faster than my ordinary S5. My LHS has the following engines:

NovaMax 12
Novarossi NS12
Collari XS12

I ve seen the Max performing it is impressive but it is beyond my budget around $380 here and most of the guys said it has average low end but a very good high end. Novarossi NS12 there are about 5 guys using it here they said the old S5 is better. Collari XS12 this is the cheapest of the three only $200 a friend of mine has one and he said its almost impossible to tune properly with the original carb so he use Novarossi carb instead. Anyhow I don't mind ordering from oversea if you can recommend me a good one.
