Prefix New Engine Of Choice For Trans-Am TA2

The Trans-Am Race Co. has announced that Prefix has been selected as the exclusive supplier of the brand new TA2 Choice engine.

The durable Choice engine is a lower-cost model that performs at the same level as current engines. The Choice engine is eligible to be used in all three marques in the TA2 class.

The announcement does not change the eligibility status of existing certified TA2 Approved Engines built by approved/certified builders and rebuilders.

“We expect a motor to be good for an entire season of Trans-Am racing, and have a rebuild cost that is half of what it has been in the past,” Trans-Am TA2 Technical Director Ricky Brooks said. “We’ve also engaged DeLand, Florida-based Koury, Inc. as an approved rebuilder to give our competitors another choice in terms of geography of where they are getting the rebuilds done and that can also be factored into the cost savings.

“Additionally, Prefix will support the rest of the country with rebuilds by offering a cost neutral shipping solution regardless of where a competitor is located within the Continental US to accommodate the growing interest in the West as a result of Trans-Am’s West Coast Championship.”

Michigan-based Prefix Corp. creates prototype designs, mock-ups, and full-scale concept vehicles for the automotive and aviation industries. Prefix is an Approved Engine Builder/Rebuilder (AEBR) for the Trans-Am series “with a reputation for solid performing and reliable engines.” Prefix currently builds all three (Chevy, Dodge, and Ford) race engines for the series.
