Default Help me power a Great planes super sportster 40

I have acquired a Sportster kit mostly built, Builder was a quality builder. it has been modified and built lightweight and Is framed up but not complete. I have a little idea on what to power it with, Information on Brushless motors is overwhelming. one guide will say 80 to 90 watts for a sport model, another 110 to 120 watts per pound. Just wanted some opinions and options.

If it comes in around its projected 5lb weight an E-flite Power 46 motor with a 60amp ESC turning a 13x8 prop running on a 5-cell lipo should pull it around nicely. If you desire more speed/power then a Power 52 set-up.
