I apologize for this type of topic. I'm sure all of you guys who've been around forever get tired of these questions, however, I looked and looked and can't find this information online.
To start with, it's an academic question because I don't expect my car to be competitive and I'm incredibly out of practice at autocross. Even when I did autocross with semi regularity, it was in a FWD car (1986 VW GTI), and I needed far more behind the wheel time even then before I would have been competitive. I'm a Super Beetle guy first and autocross second, so this would be to just have additional fun with my Super Beetle, and, perhaps, introduce my 16 year old son to autocrossing (which I believe teaches an incredible amount of car control).
That all said, I STILL want to comply the rules to classify my car.
What I have is a 1974 VW Super Beetle into which I'm installing a 2 liter VW Bus engine (T4). I believe this would, legally, place me in STS (all other mods appear to be within the STS rules). I believe this based upon the fact the Porsche 914 is in this class, and my T4 is almost literally the same engine as a 914. I suppose the people who define the car's classes wouldn't anticipate something like a Beetle with more SCCA legal power. I'm in the SanFrancisco region, so I could run in the OSP class if I fit nowhere else.
Thanks in advance
