    All will be clear when Sidd and his team Starts working the manufacturing part of the project. And I am working on a turbocharger( might sound weird for a Go-Kart). However, what's the harm to storm some ideas eh! :p

    If you don't mind me asking, what's your budget? A turbocharger for a 50-100cc engine would be ridiculous. Even if you buy a bigger capacity engine, the cost and headache involved in integrating a turbocharger into the engine system is just not worth it. If you need that kinda power simply buy a 500-600cc bike engine. That'll provide more than enough power.
    Since this is your first project, I would suggest you keep it simple. You can always add improvements in the subsequent iterations based on the knowledge you'll gain from this build.

    the thing is we are very very tight on budget so we are trying our hands on engines which would cost less, btw my other friend is going to visit a scrap yard, let's see what he could fine


    off topic but XLR now you should change from 'fiat enthusiast to punto 90HP sport'

    Hunt for a engine which has high torque at low rpm like the legendary two stroke suzuki shogun engine. The gearbox should be as simple as possible.
