    Hello Skizzil,

    We don't see very many RX-7's at the club, let alone one that has been swapped with a SBC engine, and I'd very much love to see the car and you in action at one of our future events.

    As complicated and encompassing as the SCCA rulebook may be, it isn't too obvious to me which category your FC3S falls into. The only thing I am somewhat certain is -- it would probably fall into some kind of Prepared class, with X-Prepared being the most likely. Perhaps someone more familiar with rules regarding engine swaps and other custom work can chime in here.
