Default 04 sti with 5x114.3 hub swap - BSP legal?

i have a 6gun 5x114.3 hub swap for sale and an interested buyer is curious to know if his car would still be BSP legal. i honestly have no idea, i never cared what class i was in, i just wanted to go out and have fun while making the car more and more fun to drive

technically, he'd be driving an 05 sti and be limited to 17x8 wheels?

Update / backdate would seem to allow it. In BSP....he'd not have to worry about sticking with 17x8 wheels, as they are unrestricted. If he's planning on STU, that'd b a different story, as UD/BD is not allowed in the ST category.

Nhat,
(got2boostit2 from IWSTI) There was a member here and on IW that performed the swap and ran in BSP locally in Ohio and at SCCA Nationals. I can try and locate his screen name to let him provide input. Seems to me you are not limited to an 8" wide rim. Also, there is a WRX bug eye running BSP(might be ESP) now (screen name mccanix-me thinks) who also did a 2.5l swap and suspension swap, he is very knowledgeable on the rules and can provide input. Your potential buyer should be good to go.

I did the swap on my 04, run all kinds of SCCA events in BSP.

It's an update, also, it's not a weight savings, the 5X114.3 setup is actually heavier than the 5X100 hubs. I never had an issue, you are only saving bearing life, ease of changing the front bearings.

I know people had "pad knock-back" or whatever it's called. For autocross I didn't really notice a difference.
