I think it mostly have to do with space. Most .21 size engines are longer than the smallblocks. So you need a chassis that is a little longer to compensate. Also when you move up to a .21 you usually have to beef up the drivetrain....

Honestly, If it were possible, I think a lot of people would be doing it. Also, if you were able to do it, there would be no need for any .21 conversion kits.

If it were possible I would not have paid all that money to have 2 .21 maxx's! Save up and buy a kit you will love it!
