what are the engine swap rules for Prepared?
First off I'll state that I'm not familiar with prepared or modified rules, but it does look like there is allowance for update back date in prepared, and all foci are on the same line in Appendix A.
1. Equipment and/or specifications may be exchanged between different
years and models of a vehicle if
(a) the item is standard on the year/model from which it was taken,
(b) the years/models are listed on the same line of Appendix A
(Prepared Classes). The updated/backdated part or the part
to which it is to be attached may not be altered, modified, machined
or otherwise changed to facilitate the updating/backdating
allowance unless the modification is specifically allowed by
these rules. ...
So update/backdate is allowed, engine mods are pretty open, I think someone would be hard pressed to protest that switch, especially if engine mounts are free. No reason that I would send you up to modified. Those people are crazy anyway
