OK the FAA has already ruled that airframe and power plants require equal expertise witness the rules to get your A and your P.
Also why doesn’t the FAA grant credit for building an engine?

I mean I can build an airframe and hang a certified engine on it and it will be qualified experimental aircraft.
Why can’t I build an engine and hang it on a certified airframe and get the same credit for a experimental aircraft?
It would seem like I would learn about the same amount either way!
