Default Finally went through with it

After weeks of deliberation, I finally went ahead and started what will probably be my last big project for a while. I have been wanting to try and build the most overpowered puller possible, within the limits for size and weight in our club.
Why did it take so long? Well, let's say that the engines I've been cheking out aren't exactly cheap and the differences between them seem small, but can have serious design consequences. I finally decided on an engine and after a lot of searching for the best price, I finally put in the order.
Hopefully this beauty will be delivered to my door in 2-5 days:



Specs:
Twin cylinder MVVS 116 IRS 116cc (7.2 Cubic inch), Boxer configuration
Power output 11 hp @5900.
bore 42mm, stroke 42mm,
weight 3220 grams including ignition and battery.
Fuel: petrol, unleaded 95 octane (US: unleaded premium gas 91 pump octane).
oil: Mobil 1 2T or equivalent two stroke fully synthetic racing oil.

I'll keep you guys updated on the progress, but I have no idea as to when this one will be finished.

Hmmm.... For some reason the word "OVERKILL" keeps going through my head. Oh well, better to have more than less right?

See the link. Total cost of the build will probably be two to three times the price of the engine though.
