If they could shift to higher powered versions (which may need stronger mounts and a bit if wing reinforcement) You may get close the power of the old 3 engines.To be frank, I'm okay with the Ju 52 retaining the fixed U/C after all.
yanking the engine a prop could save you about 1000lbs or more. Extend the fuselage about 3-4 feet so the crew helps restore the CG. Adds 2-4 seats/cargo?
Put a pointy nose on it
Of course if one engine dies the whole plane is going to hit the ground in short order, that things was not going to stay in air on one 1000hp engine.
