One thing is that its not legal to run in the sedan class being that its a 5 port and sedans run 3 port engines. But being its a Max it will boogie

It just really depends on race rules under which you are racing and what classes are run. For our club, it's 3 port for sedan and 3 or 5 port for open fuel.

If it needs to be a 3 port then cut out the bridges between the side ports. In the past with the 235mm cars it is often done

Post it up for sale, or talk to your race director about running without points. Almost all 200mm touring car classes specify a 3 port engine. Don't bother modifying it imo. Its an easy way to have a $400 paperweight if you don't know what your doing.
