MVVS 26 GFS/RC 1.60 from Triad Aviation for the 120 size.
Saito 100 or if you can find one a YS 1.10Z but it's a fuel hog.
Enya 120R FS another good choice for the Funtana... I'm an Enya fan myself.

I think a lot of people were putting ryobi 31cc gassers on the lanier.... and definatly the 120 enya on the funtana..... the member "popcan" has that exact config and works very well

I have flown my CG Sukhoi with a Saito 1.20 and it flew with good authority but left a bit to be desired in the vertical flight. So I am now installing a Saito 1.50, which I have seen others use in this plane and it was awsome what that plane could do with that engine!
A 1.60 MVVS??? Man alive!!! With that engine your going to have an extreme amount of power! And in my humble opinion, a lot of that power is going to be used to carry the additional weight of the gas engine and the necessary mods to carry it!
Again, JMHO but, don't forget, as I am sure you are aware, that you will have to beef up the firewall for the gasser! Also the landing gear plate is in the wing ( Although I have heard that CGM has changed that to be on the front of the fuse now??) and I would be beefing that up too to carry the additional weight of the gas engine, especially on landings! Even with the lighter weight of the Saito 1.20, I found that on a rough landing it puts tremendous stress on that narrow landing gear plate and I had to fix it a couple of times!
Just one other thought and that is to consider the ground clearance of the prop.... unless you are planning on doing what I did, and use a three bladed prop!
If you get this engine for the Sukhoi, I am sure that others, as well as myself, would love to see some pics of your setup, with at least one shot of the engine installed with the cowel off...... would be appreciated!
All the best to both of you on your engine choice!
