Default Savage Gas Conversion?

I have a savage and I want to convert it to something other than nitro. I might do electric, but then I thought that gas was a better choice for my bashing only style of driving. I found an engine that might fit with no problem. I dont want to modify the chassis because i want it to look mostly stock except for the huge engine coming out of the body. here is the engine I think will work. The exhaust will go over the right tvp. I have a savage 25 so the tvp's are symetrical and small. Tell me if you think it will fit or even work. I really want to do this and it would be awsome.

That engine revs way too low for use in an MT, and the Fuji Imvac is quite large.

There also might be a overheating problem with that engine. I belive that is used for airplanes, which dont have heating problems.

EDIT: That doesnt have much of a heat sink.

would a baja engine work? If the space between the tvp's and a baja is the same as the savage (3") then the motor would fit. anyone with a baja mind measuring the space between the tvp's?

you should ask that in the large scale forums a lot of baja owners in there.

These engines are WAY too big for a savage, if you want a gas truck get a gas truck. A baja engine, which is a Cy23rc or a cy26rc would be way too big
