engine questions

Im a hunter and a 4 wheel driver but just like everybody else Ive got the power bug and I got questions?

Can i do an engine swap and keep my 4x4?
If I swap my engine is the new engine going to be as reliable as the stock one?
Is the hp difference going to be enough to spend a couple thousand on or should I just soup the stock engine up?

A good 686 is still fun for a little less money

one more question.

Do they make kits of you wanted to add an exhaust or a snorkel system for mud bogging or would you have to fabricate your own

snork'n the rotax would be pretty easy to do..they do the quads all the time. Rotax your Rhino has a great kit, down to the wire harnesess if you feel up to the task of doing it yourself.
