    I had heard rumors that the SEB had been approached about allowing SM engine swaps to come from alternate manufacturers, ie: an E30 with an SR20DET, reflecting current trends in the street car community. With the LS nation trying to take over every engine bay in existence, and the 2JZ crowd attempting to negatively affect F:R balance of any car they get their hands on, it's my observation that there are many cars on the road who could conceivably find a well matched home in SM without affecting the current competitiveness of the existing platforms.

     

    Has anyone heard talk of this nature, or better, anything in writing that shows a move in this direction? Alternatively, are there other classes that are well suited to truly dual-purpose, street cars with odd-ball engine swaps?

    It's in the 2018 Rules.  150lb penalty for swaps from a different manufacturer.
