They've opened up engine variations (max 5000cc), and bodyshapes. That's the only incoming rule change.

Don't think I've read anything about a 5 litre cap - Not doubting you but got a link?

It also says in the linked document
Quote:
The 2017 blueprint opens up the way for smaller turbo-charged six or four cylinder engines to compete alongside the current V8 engines.
Although that is a marketing document and not a set of rules, it talks about the current 5.0 litre engines, then of smaller FI engines being permitted to run against the current engines. Sounds like a 5 litre cap doesn't it?

The truth is that now it is a case of checking with sueprcars if you want to introduce a motor, and then meet the basic requirements as quoted. everything is on the table

Again, that IS only a marketing document that you linked but all it says about alternative motors is that smaller capacity FI motors can join the existing (5 litre) V8 motors.

No the article says engine configuration is "open" in the diagram at the top

That bit you mentioned is just the author describing some potential options

Jeez Pecky - you're grabbing at straws there - the articles says existing V8s with smaller capacity 4 or 6 cyl FI engines added. Configuration (inline or vee or horizontally opposed or whatever) is different to capacity. Capacity (current 5 litre engines) is what was brought up in this discussion.
Again, a marketing article including a marketing diagram - not a rules set, not regulations so no point looking for loopholes in it.

Explained that already, not going to keep repeating myself. Fill your boots mate, I've said as much as I can on this point.

No you havent, you have used some fill by a journo who never mentions capacity and have ignored the black letter

The race car version must:

be powered by an engine configuration, be that 4, 6 or 8 cylinder (or other) that does not exceed the Supercars accumulated engine power output and weighted average;

that is the only regulation i can find regarding engines ,

No where do the regulations limit capacity, its not even referred too, unless you have some other source
