The factory part number casted into the blocks was the heart and soul of the class. Without that rule, we can hardly apply the word "stock" to the class. If they need to make such a drastic change to the rules, they need to change the name of the class as well. Call it something like "Pro 500 or "All Motor". "All Motor" is what Milan calls their naturaly aspirated class in their monthly heads-up "run what ya brung" series.

Default NHRA business

Now that NHRA has a proper business structure they might be executing an extensive business plan. Future classes and growth.

They supposedly will do the spec engine rule to keep Pro Stock alive. If that fails and the class is cancelled through a business decision NHRA can say that they tried to save it. Pure speculation on my part. Save another debacle like the Pro Stock Truck class failure.

Then bring on the Copo's Cobra Jets and Hemi's.

I think that is the direction the class needs to go to stay relevant and alive.

I know where there's an Opel GT for sale. Now there's your low drag, low weight 2018 Pro Stocker!

I still say it's competition eliminator configuration.

Perhaps another analogy that will convince you is this: I thought my ex was a real blonde....until.....

The casual fan will not have a clue that the engine does not match the body, they just know they want a Ford to beat a Chevy, a Dodge to beat a Ford, etc.

Just like the casual fan probably doesn't know that DRCE means GM except for the Bowtie someone may engrave on the valve covers.

It also means that without a part number requirement you could run anything as long as it's 500" EFI and 10,500 RPM

Well, as long as you use NHRA's fuel injection control box.

James Bond said it best:

"I don't particularly care what color a girls hair is. Provided the collar matches the cuffs, of course."

Same/same for Pro Stockers, of course.
