    The 91 Cary I bought was $5000!
    It came with a title!
    And I had 1000 mile trip one way to go get it! (SC Coast)
    If you are going to get a mini Truck they did make a jumbo cab with a turbo!

    jumbo cab+turbo plus flat bed? i thought the turbo was reserved only for the full vans?

    RZR is a belt drive CVT, as are all UTVs except the Yamaha.

    i know that.
    actually i could get a shaft drive motorcycle engine with the trans and that would probably just bolt straight up the stock driveshaft.
    specifically im looking at a 81 yamaha xj750 engine. 82hp @ 9000rpm and 50lb-ft of torque at 7500rpm
    im looking at the pics and they look to be the same size and bolt pattern. if not,i can make a adapter.
    i was actually wanting to get the bike to use the engine on my gokart for when i convert it to a rally racer (the whole bike is cheaper than the 25hp engine alone that i wanted)
    but this would be alot cooler if it did work.
    its a transverse 4 so that might be a issue,its wide not long. 5spd trans,trying to find the gearing ratio's to see if it would have the torque output to the wheels (or final drive i guess) to be viable over the stock one.

    so i just went and looked at the bike today and i gotta be honest im pretty deadset on buying it. i got 500 to spend and it cost 450,needs a cdi though.
    by the end of next week i should have a motorcycle to work with. after that i can figure something out about the carry about how im going to go about getting it.

    Start a new thread on your build!
    And don't forget the pics!

    Sweet! Yep, do a build thread if it happens! Just realized I had no build thread on mine, although now I am not currently the one

    The motorcycle guy blew me off so I bought my mom's taurus. Not Gonna pull parts from that but probably make it 600+ fwhp.
    I went to go look at buying a Honda Civic with a 1.5l I4 and it was such a cute little engine,I could pick it up with one hand. (I'm 180lbs btw. Not huge.)
    I was thinking two things.
    One,that engine would be hella fun on my gokart.
    Two,it's got just over double the power of the Carry's engine. If I could manage a swap that'd be great considering there's also turbo kits for the d15b2 in the Civic readily available which would further boost power.
    Opinions/thoughts?

    You will have height issues! The 660 is a lay down or a slat 3 cyl and there isn't much room around it!

    Could you get me a measurement of the 660? And I'll just look around for engines that meet that size.?

    660 is a slat. I have mine completely out and would have been able to measure, although I am away from my stuff for a few more months sadly.

    Ill try to get a rough idea this weekend if I get time?
    One other post mentioned the Subaru Boxer!
    Personally I am hoping to buy a complete 05 Arctic Cat 660! that has been crashed yust for the intake and exhaust and EFI and I hope to be about 80hp?

    any update on this guys? im planning on getting either the 540cc 2stoke engine or the 660cc 4stroke,both with 4wd and a 5/5+EL manual,,,in the next few weeks/few months. if no real suggestions i'll get two cheaper 4wd ones, chop the frames and extend just one of them,make it about 9" wider, and drop a LT1 350 chevy-small-block and making a custom adapter plate+clutch assembly, and then blueprinting the gearset (and input/output splines,and anything that transfers torque) and having them rebuilt,and even re-geared (overdrive unit also added for a 15% OD in any gear at a switch.), but built to handle y'know like 410lb-ft of torque from a 5.7L turbocharged corvette V8..... >:)

    specifically that lt1 350 though. i got the engine+trans combo already, the 350 (5.7L v8) and the 510lb-ft max, 700r4,just sitting in my garage...alongwith a slightly smaller vortec 4.8.....


    oh and i also thought about putting a 450cc 2stroke racing boat motor in,instead of the standard 3cyl.

    More details about this?!

    Please Don't put a V8 in a mini!
    If you must have a V8 just pick up an old Jeep!

    Yes somewhere here there was a guy from Japan that had quoted the cargo box full, depending on which modles you choose either 7 std trucks or mix in a Jumbo cab, or a Van and only 6!

    I personally am going with the Arctic Cat K6a, the timing chain efi 80hp model!
    Thats almost double the HP!
    That is plenty HP!
    And I know a guy here who has adapted the Turbo version @120HP!
    And he says it will light up the tires in about any gear!

    ive had a revelation somehow and im set on buying a 2stroke suzuki carry, and custom making a sliding sleeve expansion chamber for each cylinder and optimizing it in other various ways to increase torque.
    4wd, and atleast a 5spd manual.
    worst comes to it i can easily do a engine pull and swap to a replacement unit.
    2strokes are my friend.

    i want to use a 2stroke carry 4x4 to pull my bike around. (yamaha vstar 250 big bore'd to 320cc, and planned turbocharger + EFI install, about 320lbs total weight)
    i was about to buy a m35a2 (7.8L turbo diesel 6x6 15,000lbs) and use that to pull my toys,but then i sold a few bikes and my turbo ranger...so...dont want that big of a truck to just pull a bike.
    and the carry will outrun that m35 anytime, anywhere...(even when both are towing their maximum rated capacity,offroad)

    I am a snowmobile mech and the 2 stroke does intrigue me!
    I have several sleds over 200 hp!
