Best engine for an Ace Super Pacer?

I'm getting an Ace Super Pacer kit and I'll be looking for an engine to fly mostly pattern/sport. Suggestions?

engine

AP .061 is available. Norvell .061 would be good if you have one. MP Jet .061 good. Even strong TD .049/ Norvell .049. This is for the Pacer. Super pacer any good .25 would work fine.

Most people are saying that a .25 or .32 would be best. Are you maybe thinking of the Pacer instead of the Super Pacer? I do have a Norvel .061...

The OS15cv-a is a hot little motor,even better with a Mac header and pipe.
Or the OS .25FX,it's bigger and weighs more but has goobs of power.
Built light with a lightweight radio setup and the OS.15cv-a should be a nice
sport pattern ship.

I'm buying the plane from someone who got it ARC built by the original designer which is pretty cool. From what most folks say, the kit is put together like a brick house, so probably not many options for lightening so the .15CV might be the way to go because of weight. I understand that's a pretty hot little engine though. At the moment, I'm leaning towards the .25fx with a pipe. I'll have to get the plane and go from there.

Good lord Flybaby....saw your pix on your blog. Whenever my other 1/2A gives me a ration because of all my planes (hey I only have 8), I'm going to show her your blog!

You got a .25 laying around you want to sell me for my Super Pacer?
