    Kitfox can sell you a new motor mount. About $1000. Plenty of others have done it before, and the Kitfox 4 installation would be pretty much the same.

    I know I can buy directly from them the engine mount for 912 for about 1000usd.
    but I live in Italy, so due to shipment, tax, fee, etc etc, I will spend about 2200usd to have it.
    this is the reason I would like to try to built it

    sadly by the time you take into account your time, materials, R&D, etc etc you might as well just get the mount from KF directly. Iím a huge proponent of the DIY mindset, but not when it will end up being an sprint up a gravel mountain if you get my drift.
