Hi Don,

 It has been done over and over. Look this site up : http://mthobby.pcperfect.com/ch601/chengine.htm

There you will see Michel who has done it from scratch. He's flown his 601 for 400+ hours with the Subaru engine.

He has a very detailed website on the conversion.



CH701 EA-81

If your into that sort of engine I'd look at the corvair as well.
