    How do blow off valves sit in the whole noise issue, can you be done for that? My family's on my anus about it being cop bait.


    Maybe your folks saw this thread here :giggety:


    Sorry man, link didn't work for some reason. Cop bait is part of the reason I'm turning this car into a sleeper. Apart from the fact that it's already very low (sorting that within the next fortnight, I'd like to be able to get over speed humps without appealing to a deity), it's got an exhaust the size of your head (not my taste and hideous on long journeys, which I do a lot), and of course, there's the BOV. I'm gonna make another thread for the subject, but I'm hoping to make the BOV go off later in the revs, so I can fly under the radar.

    You can tighten the spring on the bov to make it go off really late or not at all(unless you run enough psi to overpower the spring). However, there is another way that is a bit difficult to explain but its to do with "unloading" your engine, as in shift when you have no boost built up because the car is moving at such a speed and the car is in such a gear that the engine isnt receiving enough load to make boost... uhh...yea... thats the best I think I can do right now.

    Bovs are yellow bait, the s14 is cop bait.

    You can be pulled over for driving a s14 or if a cop hears a BOV, thats pretty much all they know about cars.
    If you get pulled over for having an s14 you might get yellowed, if you have a bov and its atmo or really loud you will almost certainly be yellowed.

    so yea, in a way they are right about it being cop bait.

    i call bullsheet!

    Have had a bov (clean atmo dump, no gay ssq pinging sheet sounds) + camry s14 for over 3 years come september,
    Warned multiple times for hooning, one defect notice warning,
    No bullsheet about bov or having a s14 non import makes a huge difference and drive past cannington pig station daily.

    "if you aint a dick your unlikley to cop it."
    Ie. Dont go causing ruckus down the hektic freo cafe strip with your sick bov and you'll be right

    That is...anecdotal at best.

    But your advice is still in a way, sound...If its really worth risking a yellow to have a bov, then go ahead and have one. Or it could be all it takes to get you yellowed next time the fuzz asks you to pop the hood.

    There is no hard or fast answer when it comes to this, the best we can tell is that its correlated. But correlation does not mean causation.

    What is the law on having a fixed back drivers seat? If the passenger seat still reclines is that ok?

    As far as I know fixed back is out unless the car is re registered as a 2 seater. It's to do with people getting out after a crash etc. The chair also has to use the same lever to fold forward and move forward in the same motion. The pits don't really pick up on that detail. They will on the fixed back though.

    regarding the fixed back seat for driver and reclianable for driver. as long as ONE of the seats reclines in a 2door weather it be 5 seat or 4 seat, it is allowed. Fixed back must be ADR approved as per normal

    http://www.infrastru...1Jan2011_v2.pdf

    Can be done, but yeah in a two seater you'll have to change the registration to a 2 seater - four seater should be fine, kermit had his brides in the ceffy engineer approved

    *BOV you could apply for not having one - it's only because it's a modification from stock it needs approval, there's no emission issue with not having one, it would be either discretionary by the inspector as to the amount of noise made by the induction system, or you could have engineers Db test it to prove ADR compliance. Some turbocharged diesel trucks flutter like hektic pigeons, but as they're commercial vehicles their emissions and noise restrictions are a little higher than light vehicles

    Far as I know the Jap stuff isn't already ADR approved as they aren't sold here so never had to prove they met requirements - same as 90% of aftermarket parts. You could prove that they meet the requirements under the ADRs, but it'd require engineers approval (it's basic stuff like mounting points, seating position, durability - just DoT won't take the japanese govt's word for it, they need to test it to make sure it's the same as our code) Of course, OEM seats such as many recaros or GTR gear are already ADR approved - same with those autotechnica ones too I'm fairly sure :/

    Carbon fibre is illegal. So you wont find it.

    I wouldn't say it is illegal but i'm fairly sure that you would need to retain the bracing from the original bonnet. That is how a mob in QLD can produce ADR approved fibreglass bonnets because they use the stock bonnet frame and build over the top.

    http://www.sa.gov.au...rket components
    Fibreglass or carbon fibre panels
    The use of custom made fibreglass or carbon fibre body panels is acceptable provided that the structural integrity of the body is not adversely affected and the vehicle continues to comply with all relevant Australian Design Rules .

    When fitting a carbon fibre bonnet, it must be manufactured in a way that it:

    •is of equal strength of the original
    •retains the under bonnet ribbing/structure
    •is mounted via the original bonnet catch and hinges.


    Edit: This is for SA but it should apply here as as states adhere to the ADR compliance.
