Default Replacement Engine for Muggy

I have a 10 year old Muggy with the stock Mach 427 engine. Sooner or later it is going to give up the ghost (it runs fine at the moment). What would be a good replacement engine for general all around bashing? I'd prefer something with a roto start if possible. Prefer slightly overpowered than underpowered. Thanks!

If they’re still available, without question, get a Novarossi Legend 28-8RT. By far the strongest and most well made truggy/MT engine made today. Pair it with a 41032 manifold and 9886 pipe and you’ll be grinning in your sleep.

It look like I can still get the 28-8RT at Novarossidirect.com. I think I found the manifold too: 41032 The 9886 pipe is out of production. I have no idea which pipe to get in its place. Any suggestions? EDIT: Is this the pipe? http://www.novarossidirect.com/51021...86_p_2667.html

Yes, that’s the pipe. This engine and exhaust combo is pretty hard to beat. Good low end and crazy top end.
