If your wanting to go fast I would say that's the right direction. Lots of people have done such swaps, as far as bang for the bucks $$$, you can't beat a sled engine. For a few hundred dollars you can get an engine that makes more power than these big vtwin engines that cost thousands.

I think a small electric pump from the auto parts store would be what I would try. Xtreme Cartz (a member here) did this swap and I belive he had a real good thread about it, that is if it wasn't lost in the big hack. You can search for the thread or pm him about it. he used a big azz sled engine in a txt.
