2020-02-27 - Engine Swap Oil Pan

In regards to Rule 4.5.3:
"Engine swaps include stock long block, stock exhaust manifolds, stock induction system, motor mounts, starter, ECU, wiring, and transmission adapters"
This rule makes no mention of the oil pan.

Question 1: How many points is it to run an aftermarket oil pan that aids in the packaging of the swapped engine?
Question 2: How many points is it to fabricate an oil pan that aids in the packaging of the swapped engine? I assume it would be material points only.

An aftermarket oil pan is 25 points
Fabricated is materials cost.
If you can prove that the oil pan modification is necessary for the swap it may be included on the swap sheet under cost.
Submit your complete swap details for review by Tech.
