I bet a DLE 20 would be a great choice. They mount on the same rail type mount that any 60-90 engine mounts on.

I have a Tiger 60 I am thinking about doing the same thing to however I may have to make the landing gear longer to accommodate the bigger prop. or is there a suitable 12-13 inch prop for the dle.

A 12"-13" prop will be way too small on the DLE. I am running a 16-8 on mine and honestly for sport aircraft like these I would prefer a 17" prop with less pitch. I am sure you can configure the gear to make this work.
As far as the Zenoah, it should be quite easy to mount it if you start with a flat firewall.

SIG makes a 1.20 4-Star. The Zenoah 20cc is a 1.20 engine.

This thread is about the SIG 4* 60. It doesn't fit on this plane.

I had a Z 20 in my 4 Star 60. Had to trim the engine mount to fit it on the fire wall. Made a bell crank to hook up the throttle from a control line bell crank it is very tight on the fire wall. Moved 2 servos to the back of fuselage for the weight needed to balance the plane. Flew nice and it was a good power set up. It didn't last long due to my programing of the DX 7. I had used the flap channel for one of the elevator servos and for got about the auto land in the radio. When you would slow down to land the one elevator would come down just enough to make it hard to control. I am rebuilding it and am putting a DLE 20 on it the weight saving and size is making it a better fit and it has more power. Sorry no pictures of the old plane to show installation.
