The Super Tiger .90 will do you nicely. And it should fit inside the cowl fairly well. I've seen a fellow club members with a ST .90 that had more then adequate power.You may look at the MVVS .90 as well. It's just a bit taller the there .60 and if it runs as well as my .77 it should work very well also.

My three cents, I have built three planes with the older Italian S/T's and have not been able to get anyone of them to run correctly inverted (lot's of dead stick's). I live at 5000' have an OS 90 FS inverted in it, run's absolutely beautifully. If you look at the opening you must have for the exhaust for the S/T inverted it is probably more than the head opening you need for the OS90. You can twist the exhaust on the OS so it requires very little opening.
