Time and again the topic of "which brand name is better" pops up, and each and every time the results are the same - every poster likes w/e engine they happen to have with little actual evidence other than "it runs good" - save the very
few that realize the truth of it, like 26incher's observation: "I think it's hit or miss with the chinese engines. You might get a good one or a lemon..."
Best advice? Ignore the hype & give your monies to a reputable
vendor that actually offers customer support - regardless of what "brand" engine they sell... then peel the sticker off and call it w/e ya want
