18HP Vanguard or 24HP Honda?

Postby djunkie » Thu Oct 13, 2005 5:03 pm

So I want to put one of these motors in my G-16 but trying to decide which would work better. I found a place with a 18hp Vanguard kit which includes everything for under $1700. I know that sounds like a lot but I figured with the clutch and exhaust and everything else it comes with it might be worth it. As for the 24hp Honda it is a bigger/heavier motor and there isn't a kit that includes everything.

My question is would I be losing that much power by going with the 18hp or is the extra work worth it to get the 24 hp Honda motor in it? The cart is mainly used for some minor offroading and a lot of street use. I don't need to set any speed records but I want to be able to crusie around with 4 people on the cart and not have to worry about it straining to go up hills too much.

djunkie,

Never mind my pm to you. It's the same place just more $$$ for the G9.

From what I've been told, the !8 HP is more than enough.

I kinda figured it would be enough. Plus after looking into it the 24 HP honda is really only 21 hp. The 24 hp is the maximum power but not the recomened power which is 21hp.
