    That is very similar to the old Honda Odyssey, back before they re-used the name and made a minivan. I put a 440 Rotax in my Odyssey just a few things to watch out for, make sure your engine gets enough cooling I assume that one is a fan cooled so you should be good. A snowmobile engine is jetted rich so that it will not lean out too much in the really cold days but you may need to lean up the jetting a bit once you are done fitting everything.

    I am interested in how this thing works out, good luck and make sure to post pics along the way, these things can be more fun than a Jeep, oops I may get banned.

    I had an Odyssey when I was a kid. Modified to full suspension, and a Yamaha 450 in the back. Kept the sequential six speed, and had planned a starter motor reverse for it but ended up selling it before it was done. Not mine, but here's what they looked like stock.



    First thing on your's is to strip it and build a proper cage for it. That' looks mighty flimsy.

    That Odyssey looks like a newer one, my 1980 model never had a full cage, just a hoop above your head. They are tons of fun though, the lack of rear suspension keep the speed down on the trails.
    Put in a full harness too, safety first.
