Default RE: Engine for Midwest Super Stinker

If any of you good fellows are still watching this thread I was wondering what your reactions would be to using a brand new Irvine 1.50 Mark II to power the Super Stinker. This is a ringed 32oz + Bisson Pitts muffler 25cc alchohol engine. I bought a NIB Super Stinker for posterity and I am removing all the parts from the carriers and using them for templates to build as light a model as possible without sacrificing the kit. I bought new LG and Canopy from Midwest while they had them, gone now. A friend said these were a sweet flyer and I want to keep it light. I think the Irvine should be adequate but I would welcome any thoughts.

Thanks, John
