Read this over and thought I might add a slightly different position: I too have an Argo Van 2 w/16hp B&S engine. I changed the carburator jets and float(for steep uphill) and added a motorcycle racing muffler. While I am not sure that all adds up to an 18 hp engine I have never a problem pulling the steepest hill with passenger(s). The bigger tires, that I probably miss and I suspect I would need 18 hp to push those tires up a hill
