I typically us a .46 two cycle engine, OS, So don't flame me too bad. I need your recommendations on a 4 cycle Saito that is comparable in power. I love the sound of the Saito engine. So with this being said what is recommended? Do you recommended I even use a 4 cycle Saito on a air-boat? I read that the 4 cycles are high maintenance compared to 2 stroke. Your thought's on this?

I watch for the feedback,

Thanks,

my experience (for what it's worth ) of fan boats going back to the 60's, and running Saito's for 15 years you shouldn't have any problems, 4 strokes only need the valves setting after running in and maybe every 5 years,, so go ahead, get rid of that wailing 2 stroke and put a REAL motor in it .
