os 46AX compare with OS 55AX engine

Hi Somebody
i did bought a new os 46ax engine for my 40-50level plane. i like speed fly.
but all the friends here said i am stupid, why not but OS55 ax engine .
my opinion is 55ax may be will over temperature(too hot) and the stroke is longer than 46ax, so i think 46ax is much better for speed.
not i am very confuse, which one is better for speed fly, my fight is always 40-50lever. it means 2200-2600g weight.
thank you for answer

Get either one and put a tuned pipe on it. That will help with the top end.
