I have done a number of these swap out. The kit from small engine warehouse IS a drop in kit. Your wire harness will hook up with no issue. Drive shafts will bolt up and the adapter plate for engine mounting is already installed. There is no reason to get the big 23hp. The 18 will treat you just fine. Yes you will loose a little torque, but the increased engine rpm will make up for it. Make sure that you tell them the location of you starter solinoid, either on the starter or under the battery tray, as this make a difference which kit you get. Also, I don"t like th replacement throttle cable they supply. I go to my deere dealer and get a cable and knob for a 777 commecial ztrak mower. You will have to open up the mounting holes, but it is worth it as this is aMUCH better cable. The entire process will take about 3 hrs to do, but when you are done, you will LOVE the way your mower operates Tim
