All I have is the frame though, no axle or steering components. It’s a sturdy frame, no rust I believe it’s from 2014.

With that much spunk I'd want a cage around me and harnesses, I'm planning an artic cat 580 in my large frame dingo, but I'll likely have to go "buggy" status with it and do a full suspension, at least...

Default Cage

I am planning on welding a roll bar over the top of my head, just a u roll bar with some supports. It will also help with radiator placement so they get good airflow. Place one radiator on either side of me. Its normally a long radiator that goes above the tracks of the snowmobile but I'm gonna make it a 2 radiator system somehow. I'll have the proper safety precaution. I'm just worried about the over all strength of the frame and axle to the power of that engine. I dont know what size axle I should get and what kind of frame reinforcements will be needed?

Double radiators wouldn't be hard, but why? I'd run one radiator with an electric fan, less plumbing and parts to replace later on down the line. When I said roll cage, I meant a roll hoop isn't going to help much, if you gear it correctly you are very capable of 80+ mph, unless you reinforce everything from the ground up, and do a full cage for structure and weight, I think you are begging for trouble! Even 1" live axles have been bent, unless you use some sort of cv shaft as an axle from a car, even then you may twist the axle, frame, yourself ect. As much as I dislikecarsandcameras on youtube, check out their crosskart, might shed some light on what you have to look forward to, I doubt this will be a cheap build to say the least! Not to mention the small fortune you will spend on tires at $200 a set on average. Your frame doesn't have the overall size to accommodate the clutch from the snow machine either from what I can see.
