Turbo Kit Class Question


 Share

Recommended Posts

Rules state:


2.1.2. Vehicles with turbocharged or supercharged engines shall
be moved to the next higher class.

 

We have a B class car, and we were able to install a turbo, and remain within the 500 point cap. However, the ruling above would lead me to believe that the car would now be classed as a C class car. 

 

My question is; is the rule intended for cars that come with factory turbos, or does it apply to a car like ours that had a turbo added to it, so it automatically would be a C class car now that it has the turbo. If a turbo kit puts the car in the next class, then why would there also be points assigned to a turbo kit if it puts you in the next class.

 

Thanks in advance for the clearification.

Points and classes are totally unrelated.  A thru D, everyone is still racing for the overall win using the same rule set and points structure.

I think an intercooler will cost you extra, but yes. If you have the fuel and an engine that can handle boost, it's a tempting option.

 

"4.3.4. Parts included with non-OE turbocharger/supercharger
installations are: exhaust/intake manifold, pressure tubing,
cooling lines, oil lines, and boost control systems."

 

"turbocharger and supercharger intercoolers, non-OE:
25 pts"

The new DD Class fueling method, if it takes 5 minutes to do, does that count?
