If you can put an o-200 in a highlander....

Why not a Corvair?

The reason why I am asking about a Corvair is simply cost.  Rotax 912 engines are getting close to $24K now :shock: , while A completely rebuild 100hp Corvair is under $2.5-6K (about $7k if you have one of the experts build it for you).  A Corvair in a highlander drops the completed build price from $55-60K down to under $40K.  The weight of a Corvair is equal to or a little less than a o-200.  My big question would be building an engine mount and cowling for it.  Have any of the builders/prosective builders thought about this?
