The 18-hp v-twin engine by Vanguard can be used to repower many things from mud motors, grinders, drift bikes, water pumps, mowers, and go-karts.
With this 18 HP engine, we offer a couple of options that you can add via the checkboxes above:

  • High mount muffler with a starter side exhaust outlet (part #690906) +$145
  • 90-degree exhaust elbow if you wanted to point the exhaust gasses a certain direction (part #495518) +$16
  • Wire muffler guard & heat shield to help prevent things from touching the muffler while also re-directing heat away from the top of the engine (part #691571) +$65
  • Oil filter adapter that relocates the oil filter. This is needed when purchasing an engine for use with one of our Swamp Runner Kits (part #808033) +$63

If you’re looking for a more fuel-efficient engine, that will still fit our Medium Swamp Runner kit check out the 16hp engine

When using a 16hp or 18hp vanguard engine with our Medium Swamp Runner Kit, you will need this Oil Filter Adapter. With the engine mounted to the kit, the engine base side rails prevent the complete removal of the oil filter. This part will fix that.
