Thats great to see someone on this site who can help out with engineer approval, everyone wants turbo kits but noone wants to go through with the legalities!

Let me know what Rob says in regards to my car. Thanks again for your help :D

Is the need to enginer a car for a turbo, based on the output or just the fact that you're bolting one on, irrespective of performance ?

What sort of brake upgrade are we talking about ?

Could I get away with a change from series 1 to series 2 brakes or will I need something more extreme ?

Generally if it wasnt available from the factory it will need engineering to prove it meets the required ADR's.

I think I need to engineer the AP racing brakes on my AU as it wasnt factory but brembos would be fine as they are an option.

Cool I get that, but how do I determine what sort of brakes are necessary if I decided to turbo my car ?

Being an au1, the choices are limited and very expensive for the big aftermarket packages.

What would I likely need to fit ?

ba XR6 turbo has brakes the same as the NA model so arguably you dont need an upgrade, it all depends on what the engineer says.

I am booked in for a NSW RTA emission test on the 14th!! Hope it passes then I can take it to the engineer and get my AU on the road finally!!

It can be done here but as there is only a couple of testing stations that victorian engineers accept certificates from and they all happen to be private companies so they charge rediculous amounts for the test.

Its cheaper to take a holiday up north for a week.

The emission test is in penrith and the engineer is in hornsby, I havent been able to get onto him yet though. Hopefully he is right to look at it at the same time.
