Default good onroad .21 for $300 +/- $25?

i'm looking for an engine to place in my xp4. i'm going to run in a sportsman class so i don't absolutely need an rb c5 rody, nor could i afford one. i want to keep my budget to around $300. from what i've researched, it looks like my choices are:

mega zx21
picco g1 pro
hpi 21r sc
sirio sp21prpro
os vz-r

did i miss any? i guess novamega doesn't exist anymore, the hpi is a novarossi based engine, and the sirio is AAC. any suggestions or are pretty much all these motors alike in terms of performance?

I have run the Sirio, & it is on a par with the Nova Mega MS engine.
Cipolla competition .21 AAC. is pretty fast for just $214.95
