Certification of light vehicle modifications set to change in QLD

Code of Practice: Light Vehicle Modifications


This code of practice has operated in Queensland since the early 1990s and was one of the first codes of practice for light vehicle modifications in Australia. Due to the introduction of the NCOP from 1 November 2012, the Code of Practice – Light Vehicle Modifications will be progressively phased out.

To ensure a smooth move to the NCOP, the department has allowed for a 6 month transition period. This means that until 30 April 2013, modifications to light vehicles that had commenced before the NCOP was introduced, can still be certified under the existing Code of Practice: Light Motor Vehicles.

Please note: From 1 May 2013, the Code of Practice: Light Motor Vehicles will no longer be an approved code of practice for vehicle modifications, and no Approved Person will have approval to issue certifications under this code of practice.

So what does this mean? what mods were covered but now may not be under the old code? I've got to get mod plates for a motor, turbo and gearbox i think.. already upgraded the brakes and converted the rear to disc. hope it doesnt affect me much because i'll be cutting it very fine for time.

From what my engineer was telling me - you can get a lot more done under the new codes - however...

Whereas under the old codes - you just had say 1 code for "Trans/Gearbox" - you now need several codes for Gearbox, Tailshaft, Shifter, etc. 1 Code for the engine now becomes seperate codes for Engine, exhaust, intake, etc. Fuel system now has several codes for Fuel Tank, Surge Tank, Fuel Lines, etc.

So what used to be 4 codes (eg for mine - Engine, Box, Fuel System, Brakes) would end up with about 16-20 codes. As more paperwork and "proof" needed, what cost me $500 for 4 codes, would now cost about $2k-$3k for all the codes and paperwork.

I'm just asking because i'm a bit worried about this deadline. I don't fully understand how I will be affected if I get my car mod plated after 30/04.

I have spoken to 2 engineers and got different responses.
One said that it would be best to get my engine mod plated under the current older code rather than under the new NCOP and the other said that it doesnt really make any difference and shouldnt affect the price of having the car plated.

He also said that the NCOP will only really affect older cars such as someone wanting to put a V8 into an eh. he reckons "won't happen again". Same as LS engines in vl's etc (according to him).

This is what modifications I have done to my vl wagon: RB25/30, aftermarket Link ecu, r33 manual gearbox, rebuilt diff to turbo spec everything, front mount intercooler, vt front calipers on standard rotors with braided lines all around inc diff and clutch lines.

Also need the car plated for near future mods (is this possible?) that cant be completed by the 30th due to current lack of funds and time.
Under car surge tank and fuel pumps, non factory turbo ie gt35.82, external gate and high mount manifold, battery relocated to cargo area

also the car is currently half stripped for body work/paint, engine box transplant. Does the car have to be all together and/or running to be mod plated?

Can someone please help me out on what I will need to do to get this car mod plated!??

Would you mind answering some of my questions lol? for example your RB30DET would go under a code for "performance engine that exceeds the power of the original engine by more than 20-50%"

What modifications go under this code? ie does it cover all it's mods, exhaust, intercooler etc? and was the aftermarket ecu mod plated or did you not tell them about it?
