The OP was asking about S54 and S50, I wasn't talking about the S54 now was I? Yes with an S54 it can be classified as a hot rod.. BUT he has to retain OBD2 compliance in either case.
YOU CAN put a older motor (NON OBD2) into a 98+ vehicle and qualify as a hotrod.
Of course you can, but you need to keep OBD2 working on your car. It says so right on the Drive Clean page I linked above. So please don't tell me I'm giving misinformation when I'm showing you the Government states you HAVE to keep all emissions devices on the car including OBD2 working, unless you can prove that the drive clean site and emissions laws (can be found here: http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/reg...s_980361_e.htm
) are incorrect.
Please don't act smug towards me if you cannot even back up what you're saying.
