Default gy6 Replacement

If i wanted to replace my no spark gy6 150cc on my quantum carbide, where would be cheapest most reliable option? I Would like it to be as plug and play as possible be it another gy6 or a normal engine/tc combo. Have seen a couple on amazon and ebay but im not sure whether to trust them or not.

A replacement gy6 might be a plug and play, but definitely not a normal industrial engine and TC

Just fix the no-spark issue.
I asked God for a go-kart, but God doesn't work that way. So I stole one and asked for forgiveness.

Buggy depot sells a complete no spark fix kit for relatively cheap.
Cheaper than a new gy6 and you will still need the new electrical unless you buy the more expensive "complete engine ".

The cdi boxes are cheap on those. Just make sure the electrical plug matches yours before your purchase as there are different plug types on gy6 based engines.

If its the box that is.

I'm not even sure what it is, just tired of tinkering with this old engine but I'll take a look at the no spark fix kit

Could it be converted to A.C. fired with a new stator and ignition kit
