Here is the engines on my list:

OS XZ-B Spec lll - one of the most common engines and never a bad choice. (most people have or have had this engine)
OS B2102 - Low profile engine. Pretty neat. (tried it but like the reds better)
OS B2101 Drake - Cool just to have if you are an Adam Drake fan.
MX B2R Tebo - Really hard to find and cool if you're a Tebo fan. (me) (really want)
All OS Tessmann Editions - Cool color. Good for Tessmann fans.
Reds WR7 Diamond - Good engine period. (tried it and loved it)
Reds WR7 2.0 - Cool and probably the next one I will buy.


Personally, I wouldn't buy Novarossi because I think it's more of a budget brand. Most of the other engines on your list are OS based.

You "think" it's more of a budget brand?!? They are one of the top brands and OS could wish, or spend some of the money they charge, to try and get close in quality.
Anything I've ever seen coming from Italy walks circles around OS regarding quality, well apart from the "quality" of the price tag that's needed for all the drivers they sponsor.
