I think both engines are fast and reliable. The question is for which engine can you get the spares you'll need in the future.
If there's no problem of getting the spares for both then I really don't know. I never ran a Maranello http://www.rossimotors.it/images/r21mara.jpg

The maranello really looks like an awesome engine. Don't want to know what the price will be. Here in Europe the top engines really are very bad priced like 570 euro's for an evo-5 which is like 680 dollar.
I did see somewhere there will be a new evo 6 out in a short time so I hope the price of the evo 5 will drop.

hmmm, i'll keep that in mind. I found a few maranellos on ebay for like 400 and usually there like 500. They are NIB and unused. I think the evo 5 is around 400 to so i guess its just preference

Yep it's all about what you prefer. I myself have 2 RB C4C engines and there are very nice to run, very good and reliable. Had them secondhand for a good price. My brother runs mega engines and I noticed that the powerband of the mega engines kicks in real hard compared to my RB's. Top end is like allmost the same but the RB's are smoother so better driveable on technical tracks. Not the kind of screamers like the JP or Nova Rossi engines.
