You can never have too much power.

My first Quickie had the 18Hp engine which had the new heads which brought
it up to 20Hp. Climb is terrible but it will scoot along at 120MPH all day.
Reduce the drag to zero and you can really get a Quickie moving. There is
a formula for what a Krispy Kreme(tm) donut does to climb performance but I
misplaced it. What is certain that weight is the enemy of the Quickie.

That seems kind of odd. I've never met an active pilot that thought his
plane had too much power. The 18 hp Quickie is pretty lame at high temps or
altittudes. You will add about 30 pounds with the bigger motor and if you
don't want to use the power, just don't push the throttle as far ahead. The
fuel burn at similar horsepower settings (among the 2-strokes) is the same.
But if you ever really need the extra power, you will need it badly.

I want to aproach the original 18 HP with another engine. A 447 or 503
seems to be too much power...
