OMFG i forgot about this thread. So i guess its time for an update. The Tec Motor i had threw a rod through the block with a 6 hp shot of nitrous.... So i moved on to a Honda 5 HP with a Billet Flywheel from a pressure washer and that little engine screams to about 7k RPM! It also came stock with an Aluminum Flywheel. Then my dad got ****ed that i took apart his Washer so im in the market for a smaller displacement motor that car rev high. The Honda was way faster in the straights and corner entry speeds than the Tec ever was.

Lol. Just try those little eBay nitrous kits. They put a hugeass blast the first shot, but then slow down. And they're made for 49cc 2 strokes. So it should fit a nice large cc engine and still give it a nice burst of power.

A Honda 5HP doesn't come with a billet flywheel... they come with aluminum flywheels. I really hope it wasn't a GCV pressure washer, those flywheel's are like Briggs' aluminums.

I'd go for a Harbor Freight/Princess Auto 6.5HP, replace the rod and flywheel, 26lbs springs, Chromoly push rods, 22mm Mikuni and billet carburetor adaptor, and a air filter, and a little straight header.

Basically all you need to bring a Clone up to NO2 standards.

What Tyler said. Blowing an engine sucks but once you look at the damage you can't help but laugh, and for those of that didn't have to blow one to see the pics its that much more awesome.

Ah, I remember when I built this garbage. I was young back then...
