Default Diamond dust engine

hiya all
Alright, just about ready to cover the dust and caught between a rock and a hard place on engines.
I have a sport jett 40 or a picco FIRE 45
Now the picco would need a pipe setup on it, what do you guys think would be better, picco is heavy less draggy with the RE config, but!!!

That Picco is a stud. Do a search for "Picco 45" in this forum, somebody else had one. I'd run it in a heartbeat.

I run a Nelson pipe on the OS 46 VRDF, it has a swaged end to fit over the stub like the Picco 45 has. Email Performance Specialties and see if they have a used one they would sell. And that prop sounds dandy, you could run the 9.5 or whatever the highest pitch 8.8 pylon prop is.
