I just picked up a couple 250cc Joyner buggies. I have cleaned up one and its running pretty good but the other one has a cracked transmission housing. I have pulled out the old engine and I basically just have a sitting frame. Im looking for something else to put in it with a little more power. I have seen people putting in predator engines however I'm not wanting to replace every part of the new engine I buy to get it running how it needs to for an off road buggy. Any Ideas on a good engine?? I would also like to have reverse so it will need some type of gear box. Honestly my hope is to make it electric but the tesla battery packs I would use are still to expensive.

I would do a Polaris 500 cvt not a predator engine or a Polaris 400. The 500 is my preference. I prefer the 500 four stroke over the 400 2 stroke. An old scrambler would be a good donor for and engine.

I think that buggy would be perfect with one of the big Predator V-Twins or a 650 Ninja motor...or even the old 500 Ninja motor.
