    Modified TDI (Diesel)

    Where would a highly modified 2004 VW Jetta TDI fit in classification wise?

      My concern with road racing is how "dangerous" is it for bumping or making contact? Because right now I plan on doing some HPDE close to home like Road America and Autobahn Country Club. I'm not into having to worry about repairing the outside of the car... I'm in the process of adding an Autopower weld in 6 point roll cage.

      Eric,  Are you talking road racing or autocross?  If road racing, check out the GCR rules for the STU class.  There was a TDI that raced in that class but I would still think your modifications would be to extensive.

      Yeah, I picked up a R32 with a TDI swap, so I'm going to make that my track toy now. :)

      Changing from  FWD to AWD is a game changer. Looks like it's eligible for SM (not SMF), XP (not EP), and EM. However, in SM, you can't relocate suspension mounting points on the chassis.

      What does "highly modified" mean? It may be eligible for FSP, SMF, EP, or EM.

      FSP and SMF should have road-going equipment (lights, wipers, etc.) and interiors; EP and EM can or cannot have those items removed.

      FSP and EP have some engine mod restrictions; SMF and EM don't.

      Details on specific mods that have been made could help.
