FYI - For me I want a 100% legal and insured daily drive. So I need:
- Insurance: Called AAMI (current insurer) who have agreed to keep the current insurance at the same cost with the mod till the current insurance expires and at which point they let me know if they want to continue or not. How good is that! They as std don't insure modified cars but their subsidiary JustCars do and I did an online quote it it was under A$1K which is pretty good.
- IM240 Emission Test: These are free in NSW
and are required prior to getting an engineering certificate
- Engineering Certificate: I've spoken to EVO Compliance
and they will charge me A$1,500 for this (includes a brake test at a track). Subsequent users will not need the brake test so should cheaper.
The results will then be a legal modified car with a modified car compliance plate.
To get this rolling, I will need the Plumb Back as Vent to Atmo BOV are just illegal in Oz (NSW) and I don't want the hassle of a defect notice.
