Default Nitro Star K5.9 .36ci (5.9cc) engine in a 1:8 buggy?

Hey guys. I want huge insane power in my buggy. I am just wondering if this engine (HPI Nitro Star K5.9) would fit into a 1:8 mugen mbx5 buggy chassis.

OR, what is the biggest, baddest, strongest engine that you can throw into a mxb5 buggy. I want a 1:1 power/weight ratio!!

thanks.

The K 5.9 is kind of a turd of a engine.... Price is cheap, but performance will be pretty lame... better bet going with a more expensive engine like a OS 28 or Picco 28, or even a modified 21 of some sort..... or even a modified OS 28 or Picco 28 even..... Keep in mind that unless you gear up substantially a high revving 21 will take down a 28 in a Buggy...
