Anyone In Brisbane Know A "road Worthy" Guy?

Help get my car on the road, it's been 15 months!!

I've fixed a lot of things and all I need is a road worthy to get it on the road.

Only things that probably won't pass would be the hicas light showing up on the dash board, from disabling the hicas system (obvs) and maybe my diff which I've shimmed.

Would be great if anyone knew anyone or could point me in the direction of someone who would be able to help.

Cheers.

Oh cool how far up on northside? Do I need to drive the car to him cause it has no rego atm. Nothing wrong with the car at all besides the things I've mentioned and definitately will be pulling that hicas globe out ASAP.

Can legally drive the unregistered car to him, but you must have your CTP insurance cover with you, and an appointment with the roadworthy guy. Also need to have the application for rego forms with you (this last bit maybe not essential, but a good idea). You can then drive straight from your place to the mechanic, and then straight to the transport place for rego. They will give you plates, which you have 24 hours to fit, and a receipt which you can use for proof of rego till the rego certificate turns up in the mail (up to 2 weeks)

Edit: if the roadworthy place is a long way from you, then you might struggle to justify why you have to drive the unregistered car so far. Just something to consider.

The other option is mobile roadworthies. They usually charge $30-40 more than the standard roady

    • I 100% agree that another intake setup would be better performing but I like the uniqueness it brings to the build. I am not paying someone to do the fabrication and this has become something I want to figure out. Call me stubborn for being sold a "bolt-on" adapter plate. The waterjet has been down so it was quicker to machine them. I had one of my machinists at work (who is enthusiastic about making car parts) to give me a hand over the weekend. We started with .75" scrap we had kicking around and profiled out the shape.  I transferred over the studs from the balance tube for a test fit. There is a slight interference caused by the distance between the top and bottom studs being off by .75mm. Not a huge deal as the split pins which locate the throttle bodies are on the bottom holes and they fit perfect. I just oversized the top holes on the ITBs to accommodate my stupid error in measurement You can see the difference in the ITB spacing vs the OEM RB20DET runner spacing here. The plan is to fill it with weld on the inside and weld on the outside as well. I can then smooth out the transition.  -Jordie 
    • You could add a larger reservoir to the heat exchanger circuit so can add ice when at the track. Where I was working at the time found adding a watertank/reservoir in boot of blown cars helped massively, less expensive than an interchiller kit but lost spare wheel well. Cars could do back to back runs with more consistant IATs. I fitted an interchiller and 4.9L whipple to a LS at a shop I was at and IATs were never a problem. 
    • Dont forget rotational mass weight saving is 3 to 1 also   But yes theoretically good, strong , light wheels for sure but also ive still buckles "best jap wheels" and sigh The overall combo youre building is strong 💪
    • Yeah, I'm gonna hit him up for some closeup photos of the journals/caps. Its at a decent price, especially since it has all the required parts for a complete cylinder head, minus the passenger rocker cover 🙃 I thought the same regarding the head not having oil. Its a camshaft, not a crankshaft? Surely the forces would be small enough that they couldn't do that much damage...
