I haven't but there have been many people to ask. The frame design on the MT2 doesn't favor a twin engine setup. It would require some major component rearrangement.

IT would look cool but beyond that the performance gains are not worth the cost, trouble, time, etc.... There are a lot of things that work against a dual engine set up. You have added weight of the second engine, fuel tank, exhaust. Also, if one engine is tuned a little different than the other you will only move as fast as the slowest engine. and even with two engines you are only going to get so much power through the trans and diffs before their is a failure.

I would never put a twin on that truck. Its a raceworthy machine as is, and the CEN drivers have proven that. Adding another motor would seriously wreck the balance of the truck, and add nothing to its performance. Invest that money into a high end motor.
