Name that engine: the results show

In todays Name that engine I gave you nothing but a visual to work with and ended up with a lot of great answers.  If you said it belongs to a Lancia Delta S4 then you are a true Hoon of Genius.  Congrats to engineerd for correctly guessing it.  For your efforts, you win the internetz* and a bottle of your very own Brefass Scotch.  Now that we have that out of the way, come in,  pour a drink and behold this Group B champion in all it’s naked glory. As I was browsing BaT (anyone else think the “T” should stand for tissue?) this morning I came across a link for Makela Auto Tuning and wandered in.  Needless to say, I got stuck in their “projects” section.  There are other notable Group B projects including a 1982 Audi Quattro A2 and a 1984 Toyota Celica Turbo, but it’s the S4 previously driven by Miki Biasion that caught my eye.  The engine in question is a 1759 cc, 4 cylinder, DOHC, twincharged Tasmanian Devil on crack, meth and steroids.

And in case you are wondering what the sound of ten thousand pissed off bumble bees sounds like: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjpTeFg8NuY&feature=related[/youtube]   *internetz have no actual cash value and must be picked up at Hoonquarters by 5 pm pst.
