Size limitation for episomes? 40 kb?

What is the size limitation of cen-ars and 2-micron plasmids in yeast? 

I need to make a 40 kb episome, high copy number if possible containing a
viral genome. It needn't shuttle back into e. coli. I've seen such things
done with YAC's but is there a size limitation on yeast episomes as there
is in coli episomes?

Thanks, Dennis
