    Im sorry, why would you use a std engine? XL dont blow up on clan mechs if they destroy your right or left torso

    Technically, if you lose BOTH side torsos, a clan mech goes down. with a STD engine, that isn't the case, as you have to destroy the CT for the mech to stop working. It also allows you to remove 4 critical slots from both side torsos, giving you more room for large weapons, UAC20 or AC20 for example.

    Technically.
    But as far as clan weapons are concerned, they take up less space, so you can still mount 2x UAC20 with cXL.
    If you don't have CT weapons then losing both ST would mean you are a useless piece of shit anyways.

    That having said, clan mech do suffer from performance reduction when one ST is destroyed.

    Having all those said, there is little reason to use STD over cXL, now regular IS XL engine is another thing though.
