Should disconnect bonnet cable and run another one under the guard or something
Might prevent you getting defected for something huge

Doesnt matter what you get defected for, will still have to be all standard to pass inspection.

I thought the EPA could only inspect and fail on items listed on the defect notice? Maybe thats a NSW thing

No amount of paperwork will save your ass. My mates rx3 is fully engineered, last month he had a Cop pull him up on a "routine road safety check".

When he showed the cop his paper work the cop had no idea what to do, he didn't receive a defect but Instead he was issued a visit to EPA which ended raping him.

We don't have an EPA as such, cop just has to suspect something is illegal, then the pit inspectors go over the entire car, not wat is just on the defect list

Pretty much the same for us in sa they only have to suspect something isnt right . Thats why i believe they shouldn't be allowed to defect cars because if they cant do the inspection to take it off as there not mechanics they shouldnt put them on in the first place, my hsv senator was defected for oil leaks ( cop didnt even ask to lift bonnet to look just said its a holden it'll have a leak somewhere ) what a joke could have said too loud and i would cop it on the chin as a twin 3in off extractors with only middle mufflers is stupidly loud and i wouldnt have a care .. oh well it's all history for me now as defect was cleared by removal of exhaust and few other bits , just a pain as its always in back of my mind when i take it out .. end my rant people

I got done for having a front mount & pod filter (can't have both), exhaust, blow of valve is to atmosphere and not enough travel in suspension.

The cop didn't even bother reving the car or anything, he said any WRX with an aftermarket exhaust is instant defect. I'll cop that on the chin because my exhaust is a little loud when you give it the boot.

Got me for POD filter even though he couldn't physically see it because its boxed in. Blow of valve is fair enough, but not enough travel in suspension?

I rang a suspension place yesterday to get my coilovers set up properly and he said he can set the suspension to legal specs but its at the discretion of the cop if its has enough travel to their linking.

That sucks big time moe ,feel your pain.If i get stickered i will just get a permit to drive it around when i want. It will be cheaper than rego and pit inspections for the time its going to driven on the road.
