Engine Swap reclass --> impact to drivetrain points?

Post by FredK » Thu Mar 24, 2016 4:07 pm

I have an engine swapped car, and I have to reclass using engine output figures.

Because I am using a different engine, I'm using the stock dual mass flywheel flywheel and clutch that came with the engine and not the car.

Do I need to take a point for non factory trim flywheel / clutch?

Also I am using a non factory trim transmission. I am taking a point for a non-factory trim final drive ratio. The non factory trim transmission results in having to run a non-factory trim driveshaft from a 1996 BMW 328iS. It offers no increased performance as it is is identical in design to the one it replaced except for having a larger bolt circle diameter at the input flange. Do I take a point for this as well?

Thanks!

Fred,
These are very good questions where others can benefit...
It is also a question for Nick F who I suggest you contact him directly please.
Good luck and speed safely!

Fred, coming from having a swap car (miata) I could offer an opinion, but I had similar questions but my swap wasn't so complicated.
Best to discuss with Nick Fontana. His email is rules@comscc.org
