The motor had a rod knock Thursday a week before the event, and got a complete rebuild by Tuesday. On the bright side, it received a significant performance upgrade. The motor was converted from a mild hot rod 2.2 to a stroked 2.4, using a 2.7 crank and rods and 2.2E Ps&Cs and E cams. Heads were ported and polished. Result is a 10.0 compression ratio.

I had heard about this combination before( Wayne's Top Engine Pics", all I can say is that it was a hoot to drive. Lots of torque through out the power band, no lack of power at low revs like a S, but still screams at the top. The transmission was also rebuilt with short A-F-M-S-X gears which really helps.

As a side note, they only had three working days to completely rebuild this motor, including all the required machine work, Hats off to TRE for getting this done.
