This is why I was getting frustrated last year. I was told I could not rebuild my 2.4 because then it wouldn't be stock. So for the coalition races I purchased a bone stock tagged crate motor from Danzio. My 2.4 that I dusted at Vegas to Reno I had Wiks bump it up to a 2.5 that still falls within the rules of BITD and SCORE. I'm in the same boat as you in regards to not wanting to swap everything around to the new 2.5 configuration. I'll continue to get 2.4's as long as they are available. I understand where Ben and Drew are coming from but as I'm sure everyone know based on my vote last year I like the rules the way they were before. haha Either way I'll still show up when my schedule permits it, put my bone stock motor in, and run it against some of the best people racing to date.Just curious. Am I the only one who was unaware that we can not have redline other Danzio rebuild my ecotec engine. And we are only allowed to buy junk yard 2.4 di or a gm remanufactured engine?
Originally I was going to go to the 2.5 back in 18 but because very few people had gone to the 2.5 I was having a hard time finding reliable info. So I went to the regular 2.4 di junkyard and life ecu through Danzio. I get 163 to the ground on pump gas and 171 to the ground with 76 station e85
I have had 100% reliability with this platform. I don’t want to go to the 2.5 due to having to reconfigure and cost. I can get a balanced and blue printed rebuilt redline engine through redline for $6,000 and according to them due to it being balanced and blue printed get another 10hp. However Ben swift said I’m not allowed I have to get a junk yard or a rebuild without it being balanced or blue printed. Was everyone else aware of this rule. Keep in mind this is a class 10 legal set up that gets sent to turn key to be verified as stock spec.
The do’s are not easy to find I. Real good comdintion anymore nor are they $1,600 rather for a 30,000 mile or less long block. Mines got 3 seasons so I’m thinking it’s probably time to look for a replacement or new game plan
