Welcome aboard Steve :smt012

You can fit almost any engine in the Covin however the key thing is NOT power, it's weight. The light VW Air-Cooled engine will always give a better drive due to good balance. Heavy engines will cause poor stability and handling. It's your choice but I would stick to a tuned Air-Cooled for best results.
