Default Another 'What Solo class should I be in?' thread

I've been reading through the forum and from what I've read an ALK knocks me out of any of the 'street' class and puts me in either the P or M classes. I've been reading the '09 rules and I'm still just as confused. From what I was able to understand my car should be in EM. If so, would it be safe to assume that getting a motor swap won't change what class I'd be in?

Here is a list the mods I have done to the car:
Suspenion
Whiteline ALK
Whiteline 22mm N/A Front Sway Bar
Whiteline 24mm WRX Rear Sway Bar
Whiteline Heavy Duty Rear Sway Mounts
Whiteline Front & Rear Sway Bar Endlinks
Whiteline Lateral Links
Whiteline Rear Strut Tower Bar
Whiteline Front Roll Center Adj Kit
Whiteline Rear Toe Lock Out Kit
Rota Boost 17x8 +48
Tein Front Strut Bar
ARP Extended Wheel Studs
'05 STi Brake Booster & MC
Wilwood 6/4 Pot Brake Kit
STi Group N Rear Crossmember Bushings
ATE Super Blue Brake Fluid
STi Lower Control Arm
Super Pro Lower Control Arm Bushing
Super Pro Front & Rear Trailing Arm Bushing
BC Racing Coilovers
Hankook K104's 245/40/17
MRT Master Cylinder Brace

Drivetrain
Techna-Fit SS Clutch Line
Super Pro Rear Diff Support Bushings
Super Pro Rear Diff Bushings
Kartboy Trans Crossmember Bushings
Drive Shaft Shop Alum Drive Shaft
ACT Heavy Duty Clutch Kit
Fidanza Flywheel
Cusco Motor/ Trans Mount Kit
Kartboy Short Shifter
Kartboy Front & Rear Shifter Bushings
TIC Shift Linkage Update
TIC Shifter Pivot Bushing
Ixiz Concept Race Pitch Stop


Engine
Perrin Crank Pulley
Borla Headers
AEM Intake
Stromung Cat-Back
Walbro Fuel Pump

Interior
Sparco Steering Wheel
WRX Pedals
STi Spec C Shift Knob

Exterior
Wingless Trunk off of an L
Flared/ Pulled Fenders
Tein Hood Dampers

Yes. I read it. I still have questions. I was trying to be considerate and not run in the wrong class and possibly take away points from other competitors.

No, not EP, FP. The aluminum drive shaft kicks you out of SM IIRC.

Shouldn't be EM I don't think since it's still a subaru engine. Induction is unlimited/unrestricted in prepared.

A novice really doesn't want to show up running his first event in e-mod!

Why not FP? The aluminum driveshaft and ALK kick it out of SM, but why into EM? I figure there is a rule I am missing.

Can someone put together a thread that lists basic scooby mods that bump you into a higher class?

ALK puts you in...

Tranny swap puts you in...

Turbo swapp puts you in...

etc.

I think tha basic mods are pretty well documented and understood, it's the other stuff that's harder to figure out.

I'd also note that not everyone seems to care as much as NASIOC. I got told to "get a life" by members of another board's "motorsports" forum for telling someone they were running the wrong class

Are you going to National events? If no, run in SM until someone complains and says you need to be in XX. Then switch to XX.
If yes, read the rule book.

Not just yet, but I'd like to try and compete against other cars in my class.
