how could the cops tell you have a k&n in your car as they are not allowed to open your airbox and they cannot legally make you open it either?

well how do you think people get away with it.

i had a deep thought about what i have found out and realised that if the regulations were enforced 3 quarters of the members cars on here would be off the road,mine included.

its a scary thought when you actually think about it.

not wishing to highjack this thread but here is some more info from vic roads regarding intercoolers etc.

(c) Intercoolers that are larger than standard or
have a different mounting location or are
added where none were originally fitted, are
permitted only if no other changes to the
intake system have been made. In other
words, you may have a pod filter or
modified/added intercooler, but not both.
Any sensors integral to the original intercooler
or intake system must be retrofitted and be in
the correct location.
Note: aftermarket turbocharging kits that
include intercoolers that have been type
tested (ADR certified) for the model vehicle
are permitted. Documentary proof must be
retained to substantiate this.
(d) Airflow meters must not be disconnected.
They may be relocated, provided they are
functionally equivalent and are in the same
approximate location.
(e) Modified or aftermarket plenum chambers or
throttle bodies are not permitted.

Exhaust systems
Exhaust systems must comply with Queensland
legislation which includes the following conditions:
• Exhaust headers (extractors) may be fitted to any
motor vehicle, provided:
they do not foul any part of the steering,
suspension, brake or fuel systems
all fittings for emission control equipment
(E.G.R. valve, oxygen sensor, pipes and so on)
are incorporated to ensure the vehicle maintains
compliance with Australian Design Rules for
vehicle emissions
exhaust systems must continue to comply with
relevant legislation or Australian Design Rules for
vehicle noise.
• The exhaust outlet must extend at least 40mm beyond
the furthermost outboard or rearmost joint of the floor
pan that is not continuously welded or permanently
sealed which could permit direct access of exhaust
gases to the passenger compartment, but not beyond
the perimeter of the vehicle when viewed in plan.
• The exhaust outlet, if to the side of the vehicle, must
discharge to the right hand side of
the vehicle and downwards at an
angle to the horizontal of not less
than 15 degrees and not more than
45 degrees.
• The exhaust outlet, if to the rear of
the vehicle, must discharge at not
more than 10 degrees above or 45
degrees below the horizontal.
• All exhaust and muffler systems
must be free of any leaks or
mechanical faults and should
be adequately supported.

this is for our WA members,sorry guys but i don't like fellow members being s**t on by the authorities.

What can I modify without approval ?
Many minor vehicle modifications can be carried out without specific approval. However, they are still subject to compliance with the Road Traffic (Vehicle Standards) Regulations 2002, Road Traffic (Vehicle Standards) Rules 2002 and the Australian Design Rules (for date of manufacture and vehicle category).

Please note: This isn't an exhaustive list of modifications that don't require approval. Please contact us to check the status of your particular modification.

Visit our When Is Approval Required? section for details on other common modications which do require approval.

Modifications you can make without approval include:

Tyre size and aspect ratio


Additional lighting


Single tone air horns


Air conditioners


Air shock absorbers


Alarm systems


Badge bars


Gearbox (pre 1976)


Mud spats and pebble guards


mesh stone shields for wind screens and lamps
Body markings and speed striping


Rear-view mirrors


Roof racks


Radio and stereo systems


Sunvisors


Optional manufacturer seating


seat belts for pre 1969 cars (no full harness types)


Stabilise bars


Torque rods and traction bars (not semi-tramp types)


Venetian blinds and other internal screening systems are allowed subject to a clear view to the rear



Remember, generally, no modification may be carried out if it :


reduces the strength of the vehicle body

reduces the controllability of the vehicle

reduces the safety of the vehicle


http://www.dpi.wa.gov.au/licensing/1882.asp

ps.

Modified exhaust systems
Modified exhaust systems may be fitted to passenger vehicles provided the following conditions are met :


The system is efficient.

The exhaust system does not pass closer than 25mm to fuel tanks or the body floor.

The system does not foul the body work or limit axle travel.

No part of the system projects below the rim lower edge

The system terminates behind the last body panel.

Systems on the left hand side of the vehicle do not deflect gases directly to the left.

The noise level of the modified system must not exceed the noise level of the manufacturer’s original system by a noticeable amount.

Side exhaust systems (sometimes called lake pipes) are not permitted.

The system must be effectively supported and must be free from cracks and leaks.

Where the vehicle is subject to ADR 27A - Emission Control. Extractors may be fitted, but the features of the original manifold must be maintained (i.e.. hot air transfer tube, manifold to air connection). Vehicles subject to unleaded fuel control emissions (ADR 37) must remain as specified by vehicle manufacturer..

Noise level will be the most important factor in assessing any exhaust system. Close attention will be given to this factor during examinations and in the on-road situation.

the Queensland regulations are a bit vague but in essence it states that a replacement exhaust system must comply with the original regulations in force when the vehicle was manufactured.

and an air filter must be fitted but it does not say what is allowed and what isn't allowed.
