Default Which Engine for my New Patriot?

Well guys I am getting close to putting my new Patriot kit on the bench. I was lucky to get one of the last ones made And I bought the Hobbico retracts for it and I have a NIP Macs Muffled tuned pipe and a header that will fit most 46 size engines. I dont want to buy a 350:00 dollar engine for my plane because it will be a regular flyer in my rotation. And if I want to really go super fast I will fly one of my ducted fans both glow and electric. So I was thinking about the OS 50 ringed SX engine on the pipe. I wont need flaps as the runway that I will fly off will be plenty long. I am however sheeting the whole wing and will fiberglass and paint the whole plane in Tbirds trim. Dont worry I have been glassing and painting for almost 16 years so I have it down. I glass almost all my planes as I cant use Monokote to save my life Is anyone running the OS 50 on their Patriot? If so how do you like it?
Thanks for any information or help.

Default well-

The Jett 50 seems to be the favorite but it is kinda pricey ($260?)

The OS-50 is a good choice also-(I have not had one..)

Other top contenders:

YS-45 Macs pipe
Rossi-45/53 Mini or full pipe
Webra Speed-50

I think the K&B Screamin' 48 would work well also-

Keep us posted,
