Default Thoughts on choosing between these 2 engines?

Hi All
I am in the market for a new .12 and was wondering what most people would give the nod out of these two?

Sirio EVO 3 .12 Turbo 3PT STI with tuned crankshaft EFRA legal

i dont know about the jp, but im using the sirio sti and must say that its got plenty of stick
also for low traction im going back to my os tz 5port as the sti has too much power for the track and is a handfull

Default My choose goes for...

The Sirio STI... price wise and performance wise. Really quick and powerful. Have one from some months ago (April) and each time I run it, like it more... is a PITA to break-in but if you take your time and do a good break-in, the STI is a monster on the track, maybe you'll need to check your clutch and gearing to suit it and put their own pipe.

For the price I paid for it is a real screamer and some JP eater.
