Full Version: Autocross 914 Subie Swap

About halfway into a resto 914 with a subie swap project I am doing. Might decide to autocross it occasionally if allowed by class rules. Anyone know what class I would be in? The SCCA region here in Phoenix appears to not allow manufacturer engine swaps in all of their classes but I may be wrong.

Yep it does appear NASA has engine swap allowance in their rules. Thank you for the suggestion.

The PCA let's you run but in X class. It is still a Porsche.

SCCA definitely A or E Modified, or maybe X Prepared (read the regs on that one)

Modified for sure. You may be the only one in your class so you get a trophy!

Or a real modified car like a Lotus Elan with a 200 h.P. rotary will show up and blow you in the weeds.

This.

Emod for sure. I'm against an 1800lb Yamaha V6 turbocharged 'thing' with about 350hp. Plus a couple of high hp Lotus kit cars. TTD cars..
Mine will be 2500# and 500hp but they have tons of experience and big weight advantage.

BUT,, at least I'll be able to run.

NASA all the way, lets you run what you brung, and be classed in a way that you can run a tight race.

When I was running my car, I was up against a supercharged Miata, a V8 mustang, and a few other oddities that should up. Good tight racing, though the Miata was hard to beat, it made me better. Also made the Mustang guy purchase a Miata as he was tired of getting his butt handed to him.

LOL I was running a type-4 short stroke 914 1.8L with slip in jugs. And was having a great time, with the EG33 swap I had planed or even the 2.7L 911 engine going into Dad's car, I will run NASA, great competitive club in my area made of National level racers. The PCA guys are slow around here in comparison.
