so I'm looking at selling My Continental A65 and installing a different power plant.
I have a few questions that I'm sure The Bensen Gods know how to guide me.

The Engine I have on now is 172 lbs what is the safest max weight I can use 200lbs 220lbs or even 250lbs like a subaru set up?

now for the HP rating is there a max hp engine that would get me in trouble like would 150hp and high torque be too much for a Bensen B8-M

I got support brackets and steel wires to make the frame more solid

I know I will have to relocate my rotor system to adjust my balance.
