info needed quick

ok, i need to get my car legal and quick, i reckon a svo dealer in melbourne made some turbo ea's and i want to know if they were legal and had complaince etc. all because south aus motor vehicle body wont allow me to put a turbo (or the supercharger) on my car without an unachievable drive cycle test done (ie $5000-$6000)

Do u guys in other states know how to legalise a turbo in your states or know where one of these ea turbos are?

I really want to go a thumping turbo but i also dont want to void my rego and ins in a prang. so if i cant find a way to get it legal i will have to go a v8 and end up being slower (only due to dollars tho)

I need help cos i am pulling my hair out

I once had someone request an exchange of links with my ILS Automotive page. They might be able to help you, even though they don't claim to specialise in Fords:
