Why not an E-Tec?

Having sold my engine I am in the market for something bigger!
Having researched previous comments on here and elsewhere, can anyone tell me something bad about a 75hp etec?

Tempted by a 90hp (same weight) but on a 5m rib might be excessive!

Go for the 90, you know you want it
Just because you have the extra power doesn't mean you have to use it, but you'll enjoy using it when you get the chance.

I think the number of views to replies has got to be a good sign - just need to justify the extra grand for the 90hp
