Default High Performance RV-7A

My name is Allen and I take delivery of my RV-7A kit shortly. We will be building full time and if all goes well we could see it take flight by this years end.
The question right now is which engine.
While the RV specs call for a max of 200hp , it is my hope to achieve this hp or more if possible from an IO-360 horrizontal valve engine to maximize power to weight ratio. Constant speed prop.
Of course reliability is still paramount.
I have read about this Power Flow exhaust system as well as a number of other mods like electronic ignition etc , which are all supposed to improve performance , lower fuel flow , reduce temps , and so on.
Is there ony one out there who has experience in this field and can suggest which engine & mods to achiece the above ?.
I am presently consulting with AirSportPower and Lycon.
