I've been researching V-dub engines to use in an Ultralight Aircraft.
A lot of guys are cutting them in half, and adding larger cylinders, to get around 37 hp, at 87 pounds. Since the four banger gets 36 hp out of 1200 cc's, the twin is a great improvement....same hp, about 50 lbs lighter.

According to what mine weighs,I may use a 53 hp engine, since weight won't be such a consideration, if I'm overweight, anyway.

We'll see.
