Umm.. not sure why people always complain about the 2.4T motors. They're very different than the earlier ones.

They have the same case as the E's and S's, if it's a 7R then it's the strongest of the Mag cases and what the factory used for it's 2.8's
The crank is also exactly the same.
Yes the rods aren't shot peened, but are the same as the S's save this and nitriting.
The heads are exactly the same, except for porting, which for a race motor will get ported anyway.
Same thing with the cams, it's a race motor, so cams will have to be changed one way or another

Yes the oil pump isn't the best, but good used ones can be had relatively inexpensively.

If the class you're looking at is under 3.0 liters can you run a 95x70.4 motor (SC)? The crank and case are much more robust and much easier to obtain than an early sandcast case or an early turbo/ 3.0 carrera case.

not much of a race guy, it it would seem reasonable with twin plugging on race gas to make 300 out of a 2.8. The factory 2.8RSR speced out to be about 308.
