Ok so I have a kyosho pureten gp spider that doesn't have a engine, it had a GS11R engine in it but they are rare from what I have read. So I'm looking for a engine that would fit, I'm new to this so I may ask stupid questions.
Many thanks
Keanu

Any .10-15 nitro engine a threaded shaft will work

I have found a GS11R engine but it doesn't have a manifold or exhaust and its missing a cog, I have added a picture as I don't know what it's called

If you have the manifold and exhaust and clutch parts it will work. But buying a used engine can be trouble.

if i remember correctly those used the engine mounts that were cast into the crankcase, not a seperate unit, check the chassis to confirm if it has the 3 engine mounts, or if it has multiple sets to be able to use. if it only has the 3, it may require some drilling to be able to use a different mount, or might take some machining to make a mount.
i dont really know your location, but it might be worth trying to find a Kyosho GS12 or GX12, they had the same case in engine mounts.
from what i can with pictures of the chassis i can find online, it looks like you may be able to use a side pipe for it, instead of trying to use a sideways pipe, opening up more options for pipes. most on road 1/10 pipes should fit for it, maybe something off a Nitro RS4 1&2, or even a pipe and header combo off a stadium truck.

Most standard exhaust mufflers .12 to .15 will fit from os hpi or HSP should fit. Most duratrax or hpi for rs4 standard engine mounts will fit as well.
