    all righty talked with one of my fellow SMFers to try and explain this and this is where it comes from..Nebraska region link

    and

    The rule: 16.1.D.1. "Engine block must be a production unit manufactured and badged the same as the original standard or optional engine for that model."

    The important word is "as". The replacement engine must made by the same manufacturer AS the original or optional engine in the car. So, ford for a ford, Honda for a honda.

            Odd. That's definitely not how I interpret the wording of the rule. I read "manufactured and badged" as manufactured on the same line using the same processes and with all labels showing that it is the original type of engine available in the car. I would never have considered the phrase "manufactured and badged the same" to mean simply "sold under a brand of the same corporate family." By this interpretation, is the Noble M400 engine SM legal? What about a Ford 363 crate motor? Anyway, thanks for the link, that's interesting.

            Birch plywood. Sounds rice but is used on many a legitimate road race car. Cheap, easily cut, stiff enough to carry aero load but forgiving of ground and curbing contact. I originally made it extending back under the oil pan to create a long flat undertray, but it was really heavy and of course covered the oil filter so I cut most of it out behind the trailing edge of the Duraflex air dam. I'd like to make one with just a frame extending backward to screw on a much lighter material like a polycarbonate sheet with a removable access panel for the filter. But there's a lot of things I'd "like" to do...
