If you just want a slightly better stock replacement cylinder the airsal 65 is perfect out of the box. Zero prep or case match, slap it on and go. Low to mid 40s with good acceleration. I am running a 14 bing with a proma GP and it's a nice quiet around town bike, I would let my 70 year old mom ride it any day of the week. Sips gas and keeps up just fine on an average group ride.

The cheap 70 piston port kits are a little bit pickier about tuning and setup, but paired with a bing and proma circuit/tecno estoril/bullet pipe they will give you a more dramatic kitted moped performance boost, and built right will put you into the 50s. I haven't built one in years so I have no advice on the specific flavors of China/Taiwan no name junk everyone is selling. Most are pretty similar once they are setup right but some take more screwing around.

Pretty much all I build anymore are polinis... They are in a class of their own. Hands down the best all around puch kit. They can be a 45 mph chill ripper or a 70 mph face melting blaster depending on how you set them up. A good beginner setup is the polini with a bing 15 and a tecno estoril, if you do a good job building it with no airleaks and tune it right it will go 50, get there fast, and run for years and years. As you get better at tuning you can keep upgrading with different carbs and pipes to make it whatever you want.

The dark horse is the tomos a35 kits, aka 'treats Reed' they are based on copies of the a35 alukit and they can be rock sold blasters, but you have to do a lot more messing around to make them work. By the time you set them up with reeds, intake, carb etc the price is about the same as the polini and they really need to be ported to run as well. The good news is they are nearly impossible to seize and will run pretty ok even with your tune way off, but you don't want to be that person with 55mph worth of parts going 35 running like shit.

Anything bigger is best left to a future build, not that you can't be successful building a big kit first time, but mistakes are a lot more expensive and there are more tricks to the setup that you will learn working your way up through the ranks
