So I have a corvair engine on my sandrail I bought for $800. Do I run it (supposedly rebuilt) sand rail has a VW trans which I was told the corvair could hurt because of the torque the 115 hp the engine has. what would you guys do buy a new engine or take a chance on the one installed and buy parts to complete the buggy? I'll try to post pictures later but it's got an engine a new paint job and needs the following done:

Complete wiring
Brake lines
Master cylinder
Clutch cable
Throttle cable
Wheel cylinders and pads
Tires
Fuel lines
Shocks

Run the Corvair.
My dad used to have A Corvair powered 4 seat buggy with a Volkswagen transaxle.
It worked just fine.
