VERY easy to do.

However to keep it legal, you'll still need a licensed installer to 'connect' the service lines.

You'll also need to get a compliance certificate and then take the paperwork to Vic Roads to have the AAFRB registered.

This doesn't cost anything at Vic-roads and you don't need to take the car in.

Its really simple, as you undo it, do it again on the other car. I've done two cars recently including an EL XR, really straight forward.


did u guys manage to find an installer willing to certify it tho?
