Default Engine upgrade for a 25 RTR?

Will the 4.6 or the 5.9 drop right in? If not what all do I need? Been away for a while still have a lot to learn about th Savage X and the XL.

Congrats on 1000 posts!
And yes those engines should drop in, but for similar cost you could get an LRP, or Picco which are an upgrade from stock.
I've never done this so others will be able to guide you better.
Savage Central forums should have the answers you need.

Does the Big Red have that much more power than the Nitro Star 25? Thanks Slayer, didn't even notice for some reason.
