combat engines are speedier at low power levels (<40), but get minimal gain when increasing power and have the lowest top speed of all.
"normal" engines have a flat increase in speed according to how much power you give them. average, average, average.
hyper engines are speedier at high power levels (>60) and so the speediest in the game, but take a heavy speed hit if power is low.

Make your choice depending on how much engine power you normally have in system space. With all the bonuses added.
