I dunno man... I'm thinking you will quickly find the engine was just the tip of the POS and that 1100 will surely destroy what's left.

It doesn't look like there is enough room to put an engine that big in it but with enough fabrication anything will work. If you decide to do it start a build thread so we can see the progress.

I say do it! What the hell ya know! you may find a few weak points but that's to be expected when doing something like that. Just reinforce it where you think it needs it! Hope your handy with a welder! And do the build thread, this should be interesting lol
