Default XTM X Factor 7.7 NX-76 Big BLOCK ????

I just recently bought an XTM X Factor 2 roller. It's on it's way to me now. Yes I know, there is no comparison between an electric crawler and a nitro crawler, heard it all before. No reason to go there. Besides, I didn't buy it for comp, I bought it because it's going to be a hell of a lot of fun. I was told the truck is fairly old model dating to about 10 years, but it was one of the only 1/8 nitro crawlers commercially produced. It has all the bells and whistles, aluminum upgrades, axle extenders wheel adapters, Integy aluminum shocks,Savox SB-2273SG High Torque Brushless Steel Gear Digital Servos, front and back steering and brand new IMEX Superkongs and rims on it and it is in mint condition,-- minus the engine and NO, I don't want to convert it to electric. I am a nitro guy through and through, so don't even go there either. Anyway, the guy I bought it from done it up to the nutz, blew the engine, threw it up in the rafters of the garage and never bothered to fix it.

Right now, I am currently running a CEN Genesis 7.7 Monster truck. Both trucks are 1/8 scale, almost identical size. I have 3 brand new GST 7.7 NX-76 Big BLOCK Engines for it. I buy them up whenever I see one come on sale because they are hard to find. So far I absolutely love this beefy off road engine. It is an absolute powerhouse beast and so far fingers crossed, extremely durable. My question is this???? I want to use one of the GST 7.7s in the X Factor. Has anyone on the forum dropped a 7.7 in their X factor???? + What will I need in the way of engine mounts/ shims, clutch bell, what size spur/ tooth count for best bottom end? Will the x factor tranny handle the 7.7 torque etc.. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time... John
