Default .21 engine to a .28

Hello, I have a .21 buggy engine and I need a .28 truggy engine. Can I replace the liner,piston and connecting rod with a .28 one? Will it work? I've heard the engines are the same between .21 and .28 but they use bigger or smaller pistons and liners to make them the size needed.......Thanks, Mike

What FM said..

But, at the going rate of piton and sleeves for most engines, it is almost cheaper to get a enw engine.. Also, if it is a good .21 it could be enough for your truggy..
