o.s. fs .91 surpass vs. saito .91 special

(Yet another "versus" question) has anyone compared these two motors? I will be putting one in a Skybolt and cant decide!!! I can get the o.s. for about $40 less than the saito, but which one gives the most performance and reliability? Ive never had either motor and dont know which way to go! Please give your two cents worth!

My OS 91 Surpass has been a fantastic engne for me.
Since you mentioned the $40 price difference I will also chime in that I have several Magnum 91 four strokes and every one of them have been fantastic too.
Every bit the equal to the OS in my personal experience.
No input on the Saito since i have never owned or operated one.

Have a saito 91 in a 9 1/2 lb RV3. Performance with a 14x8 is great. Started on test stand with first touch and has never looked back.
