You can forget that .. just as a VW will never be a Porsche.

The "internals" are not up to more rev's ... can be done for shure .. but will be soon Kaboooooooooooooooooooooom. :-)

Also the ignition is not ment for over 12000 rev's .. and 18000 is what you're looking for.

If you are just building a fun boat, you can get a bit more horsepower from a bigger carb, and a better flowing muffler...

however sometimes finding something that will work EASILY is not possible..you might have to do some work..

I suggest you go into the Engine Conversion forum here on RCU and do some searching on your engine types. Hopefully someone will have posted some info to help.
