There are a lot 8.1 supporters on here and u've always said that it is always better to have more power and not need it, then to not have enough and want it later. This case is the one exception I can think of and is backsaw of issues the 8.1 platform has had. There are many many replacements and this is not a supported engine any longer. It was used for a short time and at some point parts may be an issue. I have the 6.0 in my 45 and I'm very happy. I run loaded with no problems all the time. I'd go local and with a more reliable engine and have no surprises!!!
