2020-12-23 - Swap from N/A engine to Factory Turbo engine

Q.
Lets say that I wanted to swap from a N/A engine to a Factory Turbo engine such as a "ford Ecoboost engine"
How would this be valued? Would it just be using the swap calculator and does the swap include the Intercooler and such for the Turbo application?

A.
The first step is to confirm that the engine you are swaping to is used in a vehicle already listed on the VPI List.
You will be able to use the complete engine and turbo charger system in the swap.
The swap calculator will determine the additional points value of the swap.
Your run class is typically determined by the engine size, but when using a turbo, the run class is based on the engine size and then bumped up one run class.
