    This magic vehicle would be of immense interest to the world. If it existed as you describe.

    Unless you can well afford to lose money doing it, do a lot more research first .

    with how slow he is at doing anything im sure ill be doing plenty of research before we get to buying an engine to convert. frankly if he doesn't get a working one soon though i will be looking at other means of energy. most likely sails and wind turbines for an electric motor.

    I would start taking them in consideration right from the beginning.
    Anyways, I agree with Mr Efficiency that the most rational advice you've been given so far comes from Bntii - prove that the engine works on the bench. Only then (if you're left with any money) start thinking about where you can put it.

    Cheers
