After carefully examining the engine bay, I have determined that you could easily fit a 20hp horizontal shaft Honda motor in there!! That should give you a 17% increase in hp, and a 87% increase in fuel economy!

Hahahahahahahaha!! Sorry, I just couldn't resist!

if you're going to swap in a new motor

use a ford 460 =)

you'll wrap it around a pole before you take it out of park.
