Not sure how many volts we can put through it, but I do have access to a motor that is exactly like this one that's in an EV Ford Ranger.

DC typically goes to up 144 or 156 volts or so.

I can also talk to Tom G. His Dodge Neon is running 300V AC. He might be able to locate a decent AC motor for the project.
