Actually after searching i found on some sites it was 27hp, or 33 unrestricted. Also noted that its top speed was 100mph. Sure the aerodynamics of your project will be way better, but i'm wondering if the low hp figure I read in the earlier pages will be enough. I still have 10 or so pages to read up on.
He could also modify the engine to produce more power,without upsetting it's fuel sipping ways at cruise speeds,while still producing that top end power.
