I get all my work done through the guy at Penrith. If it isnt 120% good luck getting it passed.
He is one of the best in the RTA's eyes.
Ill blow my own trumpet here and say everything I have taken to him has passed first go so far!

Which is a rather interesting ask considering the ones that AIT did, did not have any brake upgrades.

It's all about the standards of the day, so I would assume they were a bit more relaxed in 1987 :)


Fair point there Waggin.

Currently there is a list of specs on how quick the vehicle must pull up, and the engineer will do a brake force test with you, using the same machine the road worthy guys use, to determine if you need a brake upgrade or not.

An engineer should do one of those with you before saying yes or no to needing a brake upgrade.

It all boils down to needing to consult an engineer, a good idea to get speaking with one early into the project.

Cheers

When it comes to engineering, the ones that pick the s**t out of your car are the ones you want to see. You don't want a dodgy C*** who will sign his name to anything sight unseen cause chances are the cops are instructed to disregard all reports issued by them. There is already ine engineer I personally know of who has been threatenned with this action.

Just get guy that's hard to please, and if you please him then everyone is happy.

And as for complaining to the rta about false infirmation? Are you a two bob houso that whinges about everything? Welcome to real life mate where no one knows what's going on and you've got to fund it all out for yourself.

100% correct about the picky engineer bit. The police can choose to ignore any engineers report if they so wish but if you use one who is hard to please you have much more luck of getting through the future unscaved. My bloke has said no to things I wanted to do that other guys would pass. But so far touch wood I have not had a single issue with any of my reports when pulled over , rego checks etc.
The RTA did a bulk clean up not long ago where some signatorys got their approval wiped and previously engineered cars got their reports pulled and had to be rechecked.
Its one thing that is not worth playing games with.
Best part about having a car engineered is when you get pulled over for a road side and the police , RTA , EPA ect see the good old G096 on the rego label they tend to just wave you on.

ok the car is running a 3 inch exhaust it is very quiet .compaired to a normal ford its not that much different in noise, as for the ride hight,and other stuff it basicly as a standard car it does have the turbo blumbed back,its basicly a snort turbo with manifold and exhaust on a standard car no after market ecu or any thing .so your saying it will need a engeneers cirt for rego ..yes..and the nsw rta are basicly providing false information....now i asked a simple question so whats with all the sarcatsic remarks i didnt say any thing nasty to any one on this topic did i NO...so its ok for u to say stuff but when i have a go back u have a hissy fit ..... :shock:


I don't understand why you would spend the money on a turbo set up without considering the possible legal implications and cost beforehand? Stupidity.

The fun part for 'your mate' is now he will most likely get a list of things to fix when he does take it go get engineered and will end up spending twice what he bargained for.

On a cheery note I had to apply for an enforcement summons yesterday for a judgement debt a client is owed from a guy whose insurance wouldn't cover his v8 cortina in an accident with out client (dodgey conversion and not engineered). Will most likely end up with a seizure and sale of property being ordered as doesn't have the money. Something to keep in mind if you are considering not getting it engineered. :|

will u two grow up for f**k sake ,,yeah ha ha your funny wtf ,,any way yeah with the cert one engeneer we spoke to said he doesnt have a prob with this mod as long as 1. the car will pass a basic road worthy test ,such as exhaust isnt loud, brakes stop the car with in the limits ,and so on so what ever he says yes, or no then we will go from there...like i said its basicly all bolt on stuff...if more work is needed so be it, just makes the car better in the long run... also every thing that has been done to the car was reserched on this furum ,from how the set up would be done the best exhaust to use, best manifold, fuel pumps ,oil catch can set ups ,and what could be done to the car after the basic set up was achived ,and so on mate done the home work on this months ago just didnt have time to check up on the engeneering side of it wich was the 1st thing we should have done but after seeing what will pass and using pics and info give u a pretty good idea of what to expect,,,...

one another thing if the car has cost just on 3 grand to build including all the parts needed turbo exhaust ect ,,the car is worth 2 grand market value ...a basic 6 cyl turbo falcon for 5 grand isnt to bad for a start ................seen other builds on here that have spend two times that and are still going, and some of them havnt had any engeneering done..
