It would be cheaper and less frustrating to just buy a starter box. But if you dont want to buy a box, you'll need the GT2 RTR Flywheel and RTR engine mounting blocks. The RTR Flywheel is bigger, and the RTR GT2 engine blocks are taller (to accommodate the starter mechanism). Part numbers 7993 and 2340 are what you need.

You can go easily and cheaply from a pullstart to a non-pull..
But to go from a non-pull engine to a pullstart engine you'll also need a new crankshaft. That itself will cost at least half as much if not 3/4's of the price of a bumpbox.
Here's a link to the crank: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJPY8&P=Z

Here's a link to a starterbox (I've used this box for four years): http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXAXU2&P=SM

Cheaper box, basically the exact same one though: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXMPP5&P=SM

That should be everything as long as the pullstart is a complete assembly. It needs the shaft and one way nut to make everything work. If that picture is the exhaust you have you'll have to jury rig the manifold on so it will clear the p.s. housing. Could try heating it up and bending it.
