Hi Gerrit,

Sorry for the slow reply.

Regarding the Racing Go-Kart, it sounds like you have a fairly big engine!
It should be easy enough to modify the racing kart plans to take a large 
engine. You might have to make sure the chassis is strong enough to take 
the extra weight. You will also have to attach a radiator to keep the 
engine cool.

Take a look at the following videos which show a 1000cc engine on a racing 
kart. If your not into welding and making karts, I'm sure you can buy a 
chassis complete for a racing kart and then modify to suit your large 
engine. Note: it would require a welder to be able to weld extra mounts 
and brackets to the chassis to take the engine.

Look at the following two videos for some inspiration:

Best of luck,
