I am afraid that more information is needed...
A "2007 Dune Buggy" really does not help. Is this a kit vehicle?
There are some hand-built dune buggies out there that use the Geo Metro transaxle which, in turn drive the axles. The Geo Metro transaxle was used with the three-cylinder 1 liter and 4-cylinder 1.3 liter Suzuki engines when installed in the Metro itself. I am not sure that the transaxle accepts both engines with the same bellhousing, that there are different bellhousings for each type of engine or that there are two different transaxles - one for each engine.
At this point, you need to identify the engine that you have. If it is a Suzuki engine, it will have the displacement cast into the block on the left side - facing the front of the engine - at the rear edge of the block where the transmission is attached.
Some pictures of the transaxle, the current engine and the dune buggy itself posted in this thread would help.
I hope that this helps!
