Well yes classing does matter. With the gutted interior you start off in EP. But then you added a swap and that puts you into EM. Which is for purpose built race cars.

Your first year will be a learning experience so don't worry about beating anyone. You should concentrate on seat time (getting as much of it as possible), and staying on course.

To get as much seat time as you can you can:
1) stay later for non-comp runs - some regions run "fun runs" after the event"
2) have an instructor ride with you on your runs
3) have an instructor drive your car
4) ride with other people
5) ride with an instructor in his/her car

Quick question, the classes you mentioned, EM and EP, don't you mean SP (street prepared) and SM (street modified )? I'm a bit new to the terms so I'm not too sure. :confused

The classes you mentioned exist and are very popular, but with a gutted interior your car moves to E-Prepared where real race cars run and with the swap it moves to E-Modified where carts, Lotus 7 replicas, etc. run.

You have to keep a full interior for Street Prepared (SP) and at least an interior from front two seats forward for Street mod (SM).

Someone clarify if that's not exactly right.

From reading the rulebook, it seems like engine swaps are allowed in Street Modified. You are also allowed to remove the backseat. SM is a step higher than street prepared.


Drivetrain and related components (induction, ignition, fuel
systems, etc.) are unrestricted except for the following limitations:
1. Engine block must be a production unit manufactured and
badged the same as the original standard or optional engine
for that model. Badges that exist as marketing aliases for the
manufacturer will be recognized as equivalents. Swaps
involving makes related only at a corporate level are not
recognized as equivalents. Models produced as a joint
venture between manufacturers may utilize any engine from
any partner in the joint venture, provided that an engine from
the desired manufacturer was a factory option in that
particular model (e.g. Eagle Talon available originally with
either a Mitsubishi or Chrysler engine, may use any motor
from Chrysler or Mitsubishi). This allows engine blocks
manufactured as production units for sale in other countries
such as Japan or Germany.
So this means that since Honda made both the f22 in my accord, and the h22, I can swap the h22 in right and be in SM class?
