On the WEB...you can find shops with  Volkswagen BUS [ 68-75[?]  that can 
handle   200hp easily....$800-1100.....depending on what gears, etc...

For most of us [ 6 cyl]  more than adequate....and you get a choice of 3-5  
OD  ratios...[ cheap..no one wants them].

This would allow a 4.xx?  diff. ratio with 30% OD....
