Will This Be Eligble To Come In Under Sevs?

Would something with modifications pictured below be eligible to come through SEV's?

The simple answer is NO because it's not totally standard - the current laws are that all cars must be completely stock for SEVS compliance, however in reality you should be able to import anything as long as it can be returned to standard without any signs that it was ever modified (eg. no holes cut for intercooler piping, etc.)

If you do import a modified car then you would either have to swap it back to standard yourself or make some arrangements with the compliance workshop for them to do it for you, most workshops will charge extra for the work involved unless it's only very simple and common mods like exhaust and allow wheels.

Obviously some care would be needed when buying cars with this level of modifications to make sure it's only mods that can be removed without leaving any damage on the car, so just make sure the car is checked very well and also make sure you get approval from the compliance workshop before buying, this will reduce the chances that it could be rejected once it arrives.

Thank you Craig,

This is Jarryd who rang about the GX71 last week, looks like it won't be happening as my mate was wanting to road register the vehicle but long nose conversion breaches at least 4 ADR's :ninja: Very grateful for your efforts and may still get back to you soon regarding another car on Don's Gallery

Does anyone know who has a compliance pack for the JZX81?

Yes they are... as a 'purple plate' import under SEVS

There is apparently a company with a compliance pack called ISHE(don't know what these letter stand for) west of Brisbane.... Yet to find anymore info on them

Nothing on the register, nor the RAWS search atm about RAWS eligibility or approval for an 81.

There's only one colour plate for SEVS, and JZX81 isn't one of them :(

Are you thinking of IMSHE on the Gold Coast??

I'm only going on the info I was given.. Is the place you speak of known for compliance work?

They are actually called IAMSHE and they are a SEVS compliance workshop, I am not sure if they do a lot of 1988 & older cars these days or not:

yeah just spoke to them and they don't do jzx81's..

Turning into a wild goose chase

Sorry, I should have mentioned that no workshops are able to do JZX81's at this stage, and I doubt any ever will due to a lack of interest compared to other models.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
