The one on the left I'd say is near perfect. The text is just subtle enough to not be a huge distraction, and the irregularity isn't to a degree that it basically looks like a rubber band like the one on the right. I'd say it's down to this one, and the matte version of the first one.

It's overall just cleaner-looking than trying to cram the words into the mobius strip, plus gives more focus to the logo. Using pure black on the lettering here would just be taking too much attention away from the logo, IMO; it's good to balance it out.
For fun, I tilted the logo to look more like the classic Chaos Emerald, and the arrow inside the strip is now pointing to the name of the engine. Then I recolored the O to resemble a ring.
I know that, now that I've tilted the logo, the shading might be off on it, but if you still have the original image file for editing (.PSD?), that's possibly an easy fix. Anyhow, do ya like it?

What about a literal engine (heavily stylized) driving a belt shaped like a Mobiüs strip?
I'll get a shitty mockup together later; probably keep the color scheme for the belt, with a grey for the engine.

Not really inspired by mobius stripes, but I feel it has that Sonic Vibe, colors not implemented, as always I start with B&W versions and then "upgrade" them.

The lettering here looks alright. A bit rough around the edges, but otherwise alright (the Ns, for example, stand out a little bit too much for comfort, and the spacing on the O looks a bit odd). Though I'm still pretty sold on the Visual Studio style logo, and the thinner matte version of the original logo.

I'm definitely liking it tilted like that; it gives it a more logo-type feel to it, rather than an upside down arrowless colourful recycle sign.
