    I am seriously looking at the Hustler Mini-Z and have a question concerning the various engines that are offered: How is it that the Kawasaki 19, 23 and 25 HP engines all spec as 675cc with a CR of 8.1:1? How do you get 6 more ponies out of the same displacement (675cc) engine?

    Also, it would be interesting to hear everyone's opinion on which manufacturer of engines is the best and why.

    This has been discussed many times here on LS, it appears that the carburetor is the difference.
    Do a search and you will find plenty of information.
    As to which is the best engine... they are all good.... its the old Ford VS Chevy VS Dodge debate....
    Go with what your dealer suggests, as the dealer has better or preferred relationships with certain mfg's
