Rebuilding 2.2T to a 2.2 race motor...Thoughts?

Hello All,

Need to rebuild my engine. It is a 2.2T with a magnesium(3R) case. I have a very credible local mechanic and he is suggesting that I rebuild my engine into a vintage 2.2 Race motor. I am awaiting the exact spec on the motor but basically, I have been told that it will be a short stroke, 10.1 compression motor with approximately 140lbs of torque and 230HP. It will run off of pump gas.

It will be a street/track car. I want to keep the narrow body so moving up into larger displacement will change the category that I want to race in and I would have to modify the flares & wheels on my car.

I have not read much about people doing this to their cars so I am wondering if this is something that people are doing or have done...?

Thoughts & feedback are welcome as this upgrade will not be cheap but it sounds as though it would be a fun car to drive once it is potentially done.

Here is a picture of my project...(I have a 2nd set of Fuchs for the track)

Thanks,

Brent
