theres a company called wolfpack radicals that used to make a big block conversion, so you could stuff a BB.15 or .21, it also came with a special flywheel and clutch.
I bought mine from bruckner hobbies about 10 years ago...
I had a picco P21KSR turbo in mine, it was kewl for about a day, then all the belts and pulleys started stripping out. Stub axles snapped apart, etc. The front wheels would have a hard time staying planted on the ground and it wouldnt steer. I bet a high front downforce body would have helped, but It was hard finding a body that would work, the exhaust system will take a bit of clever fabricating. Mine used an off road header with a CVEC pipe that bent around to the back of the car. I dedcided the car was turning into a money pit and sat it on the shelf, now ive wised up and put an appropriate sized engine in it and have alot more fun.
