NHTSA releases replica car manufacturer rules

Somebody interpret this for me. I believe this says all new replica's need new factory motors that meet EPA standards. Does that mean replica car makers cannot sell a rolling chassis where you install your own motor? You get a Factory 5 kit and you can't install anything but a EPA certified 5.0 crate? SO many questions....

Not exactly. The key phrase is "turn key", i.e., a car that's road-worthy as delivered. If you buy something you have to put a motor in, then you can install any motor you choose.
