hi guys. i am just about to finish the paint job on my BA XR6, its looking schmick. but its slow. it is unregistered ATM and i am in WA. i am wondering how hard it is to either A) get it rigistered with a typhoon motor or B) get a mod cert to allow it? also how hard (if i need to) get a mod cert for minor mods like turbo back zorst, intercooler and R/H intake. injectors and turbo waste gate mod are hoped for but u cant see them so i asume that they wont matter? also will they winge about my battery in the boot ( it is there for the stupidly large stereo and hope fully for the intake) it is in a box and mounted securely.

P.S i will not sell it and buy a turbo'd car

should be pretty easy to drop a turbo motor inthere considerign they came out with a turbo anyways

id get the car rego 1st then see about either a find a 2nd hand turbo engine
b, turbo ya current car


battery n boot should be ok as long as wring is done correctly and battery is in the correct box
