2019-11-28 - JDM Engine HP Documentation

JDM Engines

Tech interpretation and enforcement is that the burden of proof for JDM or non-domestic engine HP numbers fall on the member looking to make a swap. That proof must be submitted to tech for approval prior to presenting the swapped engine to Tech for initial or annual inspection.
Every team using a JDM engine must have that engine approved by Tech. Engines not pre-approved will be moved to EC for that weekend or until the approval process is complete.
