2020-03-20 - Head Swaps

If I were to do a head swap, would the head be required to come off of a car on the VPI list?
Would I be allowed to use the stock header for the head for 0 points, or would I still have to use the stock header from the original engine? what would be the case if the original header does not fit the swapped head?

When you pay the 100 points for a head swap, you can use any head you like. It does not need to be from a car on the VPI list.
Any OE exhaust manifold from the VPI list is zero points. Any aftermarket header is 25 points.
