TR2? Special

So Ive had this car for a while in storage and Ive finally cracked it out and trying to figure out exactly what it is.
It is (or supposed to be) a TR-2 and im wanting to put it on the track. The motor is currently apart and needing to know what all i need to do to get the engine track ready along with what Horsepower I can feasibly get out of her.

It has a Judson Supercharger unit on it but I think that putting some Webers would be more reliable or should i run the Judson?
So if anyone needs a Judson let me know.

Ill get some pictures of what I have.
The motor currently has an 86mm bore, flat top pistons, hi-port head with 1.5'' intake ports, 3 springs/ Valve. I have not measured the Valve sizes yet, or checked to see if the head has been shaved.

The chassis is solid axle rear, but im not sure how to tell which chassis it is.

Ill post some pictures soon.

Tim Suddard, editor of "GrassRoots MotorSports" and "Classic MotorSports" races a TR3 might go to the website and pull up his build. They just renewed all, for next race.

Hotted up motor in a TR-2 = disaster if used in earnest without a front brake change!
Here's my 1954 RHD long door going to the races. Zero brakes after a lap or two, and they are about the last car you want to have to chuck sideways to slow down.
