SCCA classing

If I just happened to find a four port 13B bridge port under the Christmas tree and stuffed it in my first gen CSP car what class would I get bumped to? Any chance of sneaking in to SMII?

Thanks.

Thanks,

My concern is that there was never a four port 13B in the first gen in the states. There may have been in the JDM but I haven't been able to find that out for sure. The way I read the rules I can use any engine that was available in the car world wide. We can use a 6 port 13B to build from but we had rather use the 4 port. If I have to use the 6 port I could just go with a peripheral port.

Go run F-Prepaired with the big boys. FB+13B run VERY well in F-P.

You can use JDM motors in SM2 as long as it has a Mazda badge on it, and it doesn't matter which car it came from.

That's how you can have a 3-rotor FD.

You could put the 4.0L V6 from a Mazda truck in it and it'd still be SM2 legal.

I also once thought the rules said that the engine had to come in that car, but apparently that's not what it says.

Nope, they were 6 ports.

So porting is allowed in SM2?
If so what kind of porting do the top Rx-7's in this class have?

Drivetrain mods are unlimited in SM2 with a few exceptions.

Well... just don't try to put a RWD engine in a FWD car.
