Default 50cc class Engine for Iron Bay Cessna 195

I had an Iron Bay Cessna 195 that flew great with the Byron Mustang 50. The expiration date came up on that one quickly (mechanical failure on elevator control) and I'm building another. What 50cc class engine would work well to replace the Mustang 50 in this application; 22-23lbs, 98" wingspan. Keep in mind a fair amount of weight is needed on this plane as it has a very short nose moment. I have a new Zenoah G45 sitting around... this is a magneto ignition engine which would more closely replicate the weight of the Mustang 50 which balanced perfectly. Is it comparable to the Mustang 50 in power?

Easily. It actually probably exceeds the Mustang 50.

Thats what I thought Pat but for the life of me can't remember any tac numbers from the crummy 20x10 Zinger Pro that I ran on the Mustang 50 so I wasn't sure.
