Matched with the correct pipe, gearbox and carb'. Take your pick from the list:
Cassa
Muggelo
RT
GT
RB
Other ?

I'm sure there'll be advocates for all the kits and no definitive answer.

Just seen the Gori do a small block kit so there's another option.....

If torque is your main criteria then GT,Casa,Rt would be the options id consider first.
Imola and RB like to rev

I have the Gt kit with a Taft copy pipe and 30mm carb with matched casing.

I am well impressed. I'm only running in at the moment but it has bags of tourqe

GT:
Excellent customer support from Rich.
Very good fuel economy(reeds)
Out of the box the best kit 2 up (fat torque band)
Cast iron, plenty of oversizes and tuning options at low cost.
Has proven very reliable, same kit has been on the market for a long time.
