    A pump swap still needs a drive shaft.

    Unless I can fit a superjet shaft in? If so can I use a superjet driveshaft on the existing pump?

    Re: 4 stroke change to a 2 stroke

    There are pros and cons to this mod.
    If you want some real performance then change it to a 1 stroke. You will need to drill and tap some spark plugs in the crankcase.
