Default which is best engine for this plane?

OK. I tried this on another thread & got 0 action. I've got a Nitro Planes Zlin 50. ARF I have a Magnum XL 46 with Pitts Type muffler, it fits in the cowl great. I also, have a OS Max 60 looking for a home. The 60 will require extensive surgery & I'll have to buy a muffler for it. I'm leaning toward the Magnum,(I think it will have plenty of power) I'm an intermediate sport pilot, but sometimes do a little crazy stuff. Thanks in advance !!

The engine recommended for the plane is the .46 2-stroke. Although I never liked the Magnum .46 because it seems as though it is lacking in performance when compared to O.S. and TT. I would not try to shoe horn the .60 into it.
