Take a look through this thread
http://p-o-ps.com/pops1/index.php?f=516
It documents my build of a ZR600 EFL sled engine install

I am also parting out and selling all my pilot gear, you can pick up everything you need for much cheaper than it cost me to do it

I left the transmission gearing alone, only renewed the clutch pack. The clutch pack is supposed to handle power in the 100hp range, right where the ZR600 comes in at. I used the same clutches from the ZR setup, just switched to a slightly shorter belt so I could have the engine closer to the transmission. The engine drops into factory bolt locations, only minor alterations were made (battery, and rad relocated, and ZR ECU mount)

ok so an arctic cat sled motor wouldnt be to hard to fit into one
most of the cat motors are about the same to so you could do what ever you wanted for a motor as long as u dont go to wild with it.

thanks
