    If it was anybody it would probably be Dixie Chopper. Dixie already has a lot of experience with high horsepower applications. Their current maximum is 54 hp as in 2 27 hp Kohlers mounted side by side. One of the biggest problems I can see with this engine is how to get it on the frame. It is 41.5" and that's a whole lotta engine.

    I think if the air filters were relocated it could be slimmed down to about 30" IF you can call that slim :D

    I bet that would burn a lot of gas.

    Why in heck do they have two air filters to begin with? That bilateral symmetry makes the engine look like someone's April Fool's hoax delivered courtesy of Photoshop.

    And the fact that the home domain/URL for this is www.ncls-enterprises.com is more grounds for suspicion?

    I think you hit the nail on the head!!
    the mirror line is just left of the centerline of the engine.
    Good catch

    I was aloso thinking that was a mirror line but look at the flywheel 3 bolts, unless that was chopped on after the mirror.
