Motor Swap

I have a pulse xt 40 witha saito 82 and a Great Planes Cub with a tower .46 engine. I want to put the saito in the cub, and was wondering if the .46 would power the pulse good enough? I know it's what it calls for, the .46 pulls the cub around fine, just screams too loud for me.

The .46 would work fine on the Pulse... and the .82 would work even better on the Cub..I think all Cubs should have 4-stroke engines..it will sound more realistic.

I believe you can still get cowling for each of these planes too...I hate changing engines without changing out the cowling... with a new cowling you can't ever tell its had a different engine.
