Hey does anyone know if for example an ED with EF BBM conversion would run into Roadworthy Inspection (for interstate rego changeover) problems in Qld??

Likewise what's the score with Manual tranny conversion?

As long as its done to 'factory spec' the inspector probably wont even notice.

I used that switch on mine and it worked. I have done the bbm conversion the switching of the butterfly was fine, but I got a 1990 EA MPFI and converted it to BBM. It gained 10rwkw up to 3000rpm and then the power completly leveled out. big power drop. BTW i got JMM DEV 4 kit. I tried a unichip and still no fix, Im a ELECO and all the wiring and sensors tested fine. I ended up pulling it all off and putting my MPFI manifold back on. Also I am running the EA ECC-IV computer. All I could atripute is the maps are way out due to the air intakes with the different runners and correct me if im wrong, but Sequential injection might have something to do with it in the computer.

wont be a problem in qld, doesnt matter as long as you retain the same emissions standards or better than the engine was produced to meet

Could be runing lean as airflow should be much better..
