Default Ripmax .40 Trainer - Engine choice

Hey everyone. I imported a Ripmax .40 from the UK (Love how it looks) but im stuck on engine choice. I am deciding between an O.S. 46 LA or an O.S. .40 FX (found one for $99 brand new). I have seen pilots put .60 size engines into .40 size planes, so my concern of too much power with the FX should be nil, but that is my concern. Will the .40 FX be too much power for the model? Or would the LA be a better choice. I am looking at longevity of the engine, so bearings in the FX would be good. The oilite bushing in the LA will probably not last more than a hundred flights. Thanks for all your help. I am a sport flier with a US Aircore (My beginner plane) and a Phoenix Models Giles in my hanger :-)
