Draft Rules To Ban Modifying

The bureaucrats are at it again. The latest issue of 'Motor' has an article on proposed draft rules which seek to prohibit many of the common mods which we take for granted.

For example, replacement cams, carbies, engine management systems and exhausts are to be banned unless they meet existing noise and emmission requirements and a replacement engine can't have any more than 20% power over the original (unless it meets a bunch of approval codes).

The draft proposals can be viewed by going to www.dotars.gov.au and search for "NCOP".

I suppose replacing cams and re-flashing ecu's is hard to detect, so mightn't be as big a deal. But aftermarket exhausts may be harder to work with, especially as far as meeting existing noise limits goes.

And I guess fitting a turbo motor to a n/a xr6 is a no-no too, given it's greater than 20% power increase.

This has always been the law with any engine modification. Every one knows that Holley carbs are illegal plus most cam changes, so whats you problem.

If you read it all the way through, you will see that it is pointed at individually manufactured vehicles.

And Who cares about the bureaucrats. If want Exhaust and cams and ecu upgrades, I will get them regardless of the law.
