Default Yamaha G2 engine swap questions

Hey all,

I acquired a Yamaha G2 cart a while back. Had some issues with the original engine ( push rod broke, bad smoking, etc). That engine is no longer in working order and its time for something new. I'm wanting to do an engine swap. I'm looking for ideas for the best engine swap. I would like to find something that is somewhat easy to put in with out a ton of fabricating needs. We live in the country. The cart already has about a 6 in lift kit on it with larger a/t tires. My kiddos are still pretty young, so I'm looking for either lower hp or being able to limit top speed pretty easily while they are driving it around. The cart will also be used for country road driving and possibly some trail riding (nothing too crazy). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have limited mechanical knowledge, but I'm not scared to learn and try anything. Thanks in advance.

Take a look at Vegascarts site and see what suits you. Also plenty of info in the big block sections here in BGW.

Ok, So I have decided to just go with a Preditor 670 and get the kit from VC. Any installation tips or anything you guys would recommend. I'm going to take my time with this project, and I'll try to take pics to share along the way. Any advice for taking on this project would be appreciated. Thank you!

Strike that, I got a good deal on a vangaurd 23hp v-twin, so I'm going that route. Any advice on install or other threads with tips? Thanks.

If you don't want to do any fabrication, look at getting a complete kit. CPP sells one. I think they will sell the kit without the engine. It's a bolt in kit, and that cart is fairly easy to work on.

I did a 23 Vanguard in my G1, and I've done a couple G2/G9 Vanguard carts too. Let me know if you need any assistance, glad to help.

Thanks Slonomo. I'll keep you guys posted. I'm not looking to do any fabricating, so bolt in would be best. I'm chatting with Bruce over at CPP about options.
