    I found 2 engines will either one work for airplane usage, T0526VB, and a second one, T0412RB.

    I think the RB is the 164 cubic inch version, but the other one I am not sure about.

    any guidance please, I can get both very reasonably

    The To412RB is a 140 hp that came with a auto trans. Ok for flight engine other then the heads, and crank gear will need to be changed and the crank is factory Nitrited. Not to sure about the VB engine but I think it's a 145 ci

    Stinger motors are 160 to 240 hp. You could easily buy a used bonanza if its one of the 240 hp versions.

    Yenko Stinger is a Corvair; the holy grail of them.
