    I have a 1966 Mini Cooper that used to run on a 1275cc A series motor, sadly the previous owner blew the motor and now I am trying to re-build it. I am considering swapping to a Honda B16A VTEC Engine, what class of racing would this car be put in? Also if anyone knows the minimum weight requirements for this engine in whichever class it ends up being that would be great!

    Thank you very much! I was trying to figure it out using the rule book and I was getting weights of 1600-1900 depending on what engine I wanted to run.

    Why not consider still running the 1275 motor and join the fun in SCCA's Heritage Classic class, weight 1450.  Need more info call me.
