I just find it surprising that the rules even make that statement (could I protest a car because it's butt ugly?).
Now you make me address your actual question: The engine change is the biggest issue and you have to goto the SM class before it's an option (remember for the SCCA if the rules don't explicitly say that you can then you cannot).
From 16.1 D.1:
"Engine block must be a production unit manufactured and badged
the same as the original standard or optional engine for that model.
... This allows engine blocks manufactured as production units for sale
in other countries such as Japan or Germany."
So that seems to exclude: Nissan motors in a Toyota.
Next is 18.1 B.1 Under Modified:
"Bumpers, grilles, lights, glass, and trim may be removed"
And 18.1 D.1
"Engines must be derived from production automobiles available in
the US or elsewhere."
... and finally:
"Modified Class D (DM)
Modified Production and GT cars with engine displacement 2000cc and under ..."
That's also the class that the Lemons car run in so there is some local competition in it. But then there's the occasional Lotus that also run in DM too.
One caveat – I could be wrong See if anyone else chimes in.

I agree with Andre, DM is where you need to go.

this car should be a solid 1 to 2 seconds faster then my tacoma which is solid rear axle with leaf springs and about 120 hp less. hopefully I get things all sorted out before the first event of the regular season. Going to use the tacoma at tomorrows event.
