Default Which engine is better?

I currently have a Megatech NEO .16 st engine on my MT. Six tanks thru it, but I also have a HPI 15fe engine, with about 1/2 gallon thru it. Now my question is which is better? I'm really looking for power instead of speed. Thanks.

Okay, here are the specs for the two engines

Megatech NEO .16 ST

Max RPM 31,500
B.H.P. .74@29,500 RPM
Bore 15.1 mm
Stroke 13.77 mm
Displacement 15.99cc

HPI 15FE

Displacement 2.48cc
Bore 15.3 mm
Stroke 13.5mm
PS/RPM .56hp/29,00 RPM
RPM Range 3,000-32,000

So can someone tell me which ones better? It looks like the NEO is better, but it is such a pain to tune, any suggestions would be helpful

I dont know about the Neo but the .15FE is just the average run off the mill decent engine..
Tuning wise.. its easy as hell to tune..

It sounds like the neo would perform better.. difference of .18 is kinda significant.. thats a 30% difference.

I guess its your call man.
good luck
