Just check which Eaton unit it uses. I think the smallest one is the M45. 45 being the number of cubic inches pre revolution. It makes it pretty easy to figure out which one you can use. Either spin...

I have an M45 on my shelf that I pulled off a Buick Park Avenue. It was painted a color that one of the national rebuilders use so I knew it had been gone through. I think I paid $45 for it.

If coolant isn't mentioned in the SCCA GCR or NASA rules you should also check the specific event supplementals. I'll bet you will find them there. The track owners know what chaos it will cause.
