Too many possibillities to list with regard to engines.
First things to do to a XR80 is; get lower engine mounts (from XR8) & starter box, get a receiver pack & remove the spacers on the tank mounts, the centax style clutch from XR8 (use the medium spring), get all the pinions & spurs, the machined nylon arms are nice, Not shure about the 80 belts but the ones from the 8 are very good.

Aside from the clutch, my XR80 is nearly stock, no complaints. But I always wait to upgrade my car until after I'm very familiar with it. That way, I can actually see the diference expensive upgrades make...
