I had to paint the motor to match,and added the end screens so the ESC will get some cooling(its hidden in the cylinder head area)

I used thin stiff wire to hold the intake and exhaust assemblies to the case,twisted inside and glued. Holds well.
Not at all! Looks pretty damn spiffy!

One subject I'd like to model has an exposed engine that probably wouldn't be big enough to hide a motor, and your efforts have given me some inspiration.
