    That is a Twin Linear Aerospike engine, here's some information:

    The test of twin Linear Aerospike XRS-2200 engines, originally built for the X-33 program, was performed on August 6, 2001 at NASA's Stennis Space Center, Mississippi. The engines were fired for the planned 90 seconds and reached a planned maximum power of 85 percent. NASA's Second Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle Program , also known as the Space Launch Initiative (SLI), is making advances in propulsion technology with this third and final successful engine hot fire, designed to test electro-mechanical actuators. Information learned from this hot fire test series about new electro-mechanical actuator technology, which controls the flow of propellants in rocket engines, could provide key advancements for the propulsion systems for future spacecraft. The Second Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle Program, led by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, is a technology development program designed to increase safety and reliability while reducing costs for space travel. The X-33 program was cancelled in March 2001.

    What a "Flat shaped arrow thingy" or the powerplant under your bonnet?

    If its the "flat shaped arrow thingy" then I'm sure I could oblige if you donate your car to me ...and I'l run it through the nearest compactor. A little filling, a little grinding and some P40 and she'll be as good as new... Wha'd'ya say CJ, you up for it??:thumbsup: :yes: :salute:
