I don't know who MJD is, but I do know that a composite motor has been built and raced before. I love how they trimmed 200 lbs ( ) off of a Ford 2.3 liter 4-cylinder -- leaving an engine that weighs less then me! I suspect that the technology can't support a 100K mile engine yet which is why we're not seeing them on the road.
