On engine it is really preference. And would you be using the 82 or the 82? CG should be in the manual.

Both motors will give similar performance,but the Saito 82 will give you better pull at lower rpm and seem alot more relaxed to fly around in general.The CG will be fine with both engines,with minimal shift in equipment.
