I'd just be concerned about how long it will last.
I'd wonder the same thing. Small engines can be built to the hilt, and really make some power. They just don't last very long... at least the aluminum blocks. If it's a K series Kohler that's a whole different animal!

Well the why is easy.... it's cheap to buy, and you can get a "woops.. I broke it, gimme a new one" warranty on it for peanuts. THEN once you work out the bugs, it could be swapped right onto a Honda motor if you really wanted to. However, given the availability of these cheap motors, and the warranty, it's the best motor to do this to really. I mean, I doubt Honda would just keep giving you motors when they grenade. Sure, they are not Honda's... but really, I mean, they cost less than a new battery for my wife Suburban.
You've made some very good points! I guess I never looked at it from that perspective. I don't do a whole lot of modifying engines. (I'm usually lucky if I can get them to run the way they're supposed to LOL) Thanks for the reply!
