Default Looking to GY6 Swap

So in the next few days, I will most likely be buying a 2015 Honda Ruckus. It's bone stock with 1800 miles. My plan is to stretch it and do a GY6 swap just to have better acceleration and be able to get up to 50-60 mph.

Now I've been looking online and on some threads, and I'm having a hard time finding a gy6 swap kit for a decent price. If you have bought a kit and done the swap, post a picture and where you got your kit.

Update: I bought a 2015 Ruckus, bone stock with 1800 miles. I already bought a lowered seat frame on ebay. Looking to do some other simple modifications to make it look a little nicer.

Here's a link to a full gy6 swap. Just wondering if this is everything I need.

you will need more than the motor. you will also need a mount kit, wheels, extended brake lines, rear wheel hub, engine wire harness to run GY6, and a lot of other small things. i'm in progress of building mine up to GY6 swap as well but haven't finished yet. i recommend to take a look at totalruckus.com, they have a lot of information on there that you want to know about the swap. HT is not so big on the ruckus scene...

I believe there's also an EFI kit as well.
