I seriously doubt you can certify any LSA as a motor glider, unless it is one. The beauty of the motor glider option is if you have failed your last medical and can't get a new one, the motor glider would be a decent option.
Actually there have been a few SLSA motor gliders. The Lambada is one.
My point was, I don't think you can certify a C162 or CTLS or CTSW as a motor glider just because you want to or because you have modified it and it no longer meets the definition of an LSA.
You are correct that you can't modify a LSA so that exceeds LSA limits, then change its certification to a motor glider.
