Default NB subframe on a '94 in NASA TT?

What is the opinion about putting a '99/'00 front subframe (complete) on a '94 as far as points go?

*No points using update / backdate rule?
*Take points because of LCA mounting point movement? Bump steer improvement ?

If it is a points mod then it is not worth it, way too many points.
The update/backdate rule says as long as the doaner car is the same model & name, not a special edition and is the same or lower base class then it should be okay (maybe?).
I have an email to Greg, we will see what he comes back with. But that might take a while!

You'll have to take (a bunch of) suspension mod points. Not worth it.

"The purpose of this rule is to equalize similar cars in the same (or lower) class, not to allow the creation of vehicles that were never manufactured or homologated."

An NA was never built with an NB subframe, so yes, you'd be looking at a lot of points.

The official response is "it is points mod"
kind of thought that would be the case, but doesn't hurt to ask.
he did say there needs some clarification on the update/backdate rule in general.

anybody want to buy a NB subrfame with converted steering rack?
