stopped caring at 1000
Another possibility is the Mitsubishi 3B21 as used in the American version of the Smart ForTwo car (1L, three cyl, DOHC).

It is a Suzuki automobile engine. I'm very interested in this AM 10 engine or the AM 13, 100 hp for my Air Command to replace my seized 582 that happened at 300 hrs... What I like about the AM 10, AM 13: Price, $7,500 and $9K. Brand new engine and everything that goes with it. 4 Stroke reliability. TBO is 1500 hrs., and just replace the long block at a cost of about $2K ! Maybe someone out there who have time and experience with these engines can chime in?

These engines are available at www.aeromomentum.com

Aeromomentum used to use the ancient GEO-Suzuki G10B 3 cylinder engine.
993 cc (72 mm × 61 mm)
AirTrikes still do.
Compare the specs and you will find that the AM10 is based on the Toyota 1KR-FE
996 cc, (71 mm x 84 mm), VVT-i
Converted engine is modified from stock.
Modified fixed valve timing, tuned header and a completely different engine management system
Aeromomentum does their own tune done on their in house dyno.
Max torque is now near 5200 rpm and 110Nm.
With the gearbox, this is about 267Nm at the prop.

nice engine, but you will pick up >25# and an extra 20 hp compared to a 582.

AM10 weight is claimed to be 139 lbs dry weight.
Does it include any ancillaries? Is so which ones?
R582 (65 hp) is 53.16 kg (117.2 lbs) dry and
69 kg (152 lbs) with all ancillaries

Do NOT bother with the 1000 CC 3 cylinder Suzuki engine. Do not know about the Toyota. Just a warning about the 3 banger Suzuki. Its low powered and not too light. Go with G13BB at least. Much better. 3 banger also has resonance issues
