SCCA Solo 2 class for turbo vert?

I've got a new toy this year that I'll be racing part time alongside my CSP first gen. I'm not sure how to class it - hoping maybe some of you autocross vets can help. This is for Solo II. Car:

'88 RX-7 Convertible
S5 Turbo motor, trans, diff.
Street Port
Stock S5 turbo and manifold
RB turbo-back exhaust
RB suspension kit with adjustable struts, front tower bar
Front and rear camber kits, front toe kit
Street tires on 16x7.5's, or stock vert wheels

Since the vert was factory turbo in Japan, can I race this in CSP like a TII? Or does my streetport knock me out of SP altogether? Is there a street tire class I could run this in? I don't really care about being competitive (I would've bought a Miata if I did). Just don't want any old farts shaking their fists at me this year I'm about to sign up for an Evo school and will probably use this car, so I need to know what to list it under. Thanks.

SSM unfortunately. motor swaps are motor swaps. SR20 240sx's have the same deal.

That's okay with me. I just drive for fun and am only interested in keeping things fair for other drivers. There are quite a few SSM cars in our region and the lot of them are crazy fast, so I guess I will be focusing on "personal achievement" this season

What sucks is that the racing school filled up last night. My girlfriend apparently got the last spot so now I can't register. Hopefully they'll open up more spots.

While I'm on the subject, my other 7 will be in a new class this year. I'm doing a blowthrough turbo setup on the stockport 12a. Would that put it in SSM as well?

That also sounds like SSM.

Well, at least I won't have to make as many numbers.
