I am afraid there is not much to find than some used cars on Ebay.

These cars were running a special size .15 engine not to compare with current .15 smallblocks. I was told by a friend that by then .21 rods did fit (if you have a Novarossi or Novamega engine), maybe someone is willen to send you a used Novarossi .21 rod to give it a try.
The mounting of these engines are close to a .21 so you can give it a try if fits.
If you want new, you can try to find a RB V15 or a Novarossi/Novamega somewhere on Ebay.

Today you can find special motormounts for the Serpent 835 to fit smallblocks, I do believe they can be used as well on the Impact-2. Whith this you can mount the newer Mega ZX15

The mounts will fit all impact models. This one looks like one of the very first. Probably from 1995 or 96. Thereafter they mostly had carbon radio trays.

Someone was posting some Serpent parts for those old impacts on ebay. Save yourself a lot of headaches and just sell it on ebay. That's what I did with the one I had.
