Currently i have a 1994 EZGO Medalist golf cart and have questions about doing a big block engine swap. Spent a lot of time rebuilding from ground up. It has lift kit, big rubber, all new wiring, seats, new paint, and all equipment to make street legal here in Ohio. Now....guess what... I would like a little more power/speed. Nothing too rad. Would be nice not bog down the little 295 when hauling a passenger or two. The 295 runs very well, Its had top end job and runs as well as can be expected for its size. Here's the question. I have a cart mechanic friend that I trust. He is very experienced and has done a great job guiding me thus far. He's not a big fan of swapping out the 295 for anything other that something from EZGO, like a 350. He said that the B&S Vanguard twin would be a waste of money because it doesn't turn enough revs to increase speed. He was also concerned that the running gear would be a risk with all the increased power as it was designed for 9 hp not 23. He admitted it would have more power, just not convinced I would be happy with any increase in mph. I would be happy if I could get the cart going 35 or so. Would also like to update braking system as well. Thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts on this.
