    Why not a 2tc or 3tc?

    That would seem logical and a perfect option. You could try and source a 2TG but I gather they are hard to come by in the US.

    And a mildly worked 2T is about even with a stock 2TG. Bear in mind that anything you get will likely require a rebuild, and 2TG's can start getting expensive due to poor part availability.

    But my question would be, are you limited in engine selection by class eligibility rules?

    If not, a 4AGE is a common swap in. I honestly would think hard before I went away from a 2T or 3T though.

    Well it's been done

    You would need to modify your crossmember as you can't bolt in a crossmember from something else with a 22R (too wide). At least the induction is on the opposite side to your master cylinder so you should have room.

    Some of these guys are on 3TCgarage.com I would suggest you have a look through the projects threads for an idea of complexity.

    If you really are set on a R series and want to stay carb'd. Might I suggest the 20R-22R hybrid motor. The volumetric effeciency of the 20R head is way better than that of the 22R. If I remember correctly the 20R has around a 70-75% cylinder fill vs the 22R which is sitting around 50%. But the 22R has a bigger bore and stroke so that bumps you up from 2.2L to 2.4L. But the 2 and 3TC do have the benefit of being Hemi heads.

    Just build a 3tc, make it a high compression 89mm block and if you keep it N/A just shot peen and ARP the stock rods. Get a good set of pistons and balance the rotating assembly. Get a good cam and put a basic port on the head. You should get anywhere from 150-200hp with this depending on your compression ratio and carb setup. I've seen basic .40 over motors run very hard in N/A form, and 3T's love compression and cams. The head moves alot of air so you just need to let the motor catch up to it's potential.
