Its easier to just choose what weapons and jumpjets you need then adjust endo ferro and engine according to the weapon loadout.

Besides the optimal engine for a light is usually max size.

I tend to stick with stand benchmark engines (250, 275, 300 for standard, 255, 280, 300, for XL) and go up and down from there based on how much spare tonnage I need after equipping weapons.

First of all, thank you for the insights, if you are still around, and sorry for digging this up again.

I think it would be nice, to also include LFEs now, since we have them. Is someone around who did this already?
