ADR approves bonnet/hood


Recommended Posts

There is no such thing, other than the original bonnet.

If you want a carbon fibre bonnet legal, then you would have to get a consulting automotive engineer to sign off on it. That is a very unlikely thing to happen, as the problem with CF bonnets is their crash behaviour is totally different to the crash behaviour of the original (steel or ally) bonnet, and in fact much much worse in that they are really stiff and also tend to fracture with sharp edges instead of crumple. So, unless you go and do some crash testing I would like to suggest that no engineer is going to put his nuts on the line and approve a CF bonnet.

I appreciate your input GTSboy. But I’m well aware another company (blits body kits) make an ADR approved bonnet. 
 

pretty much looking for someone that’s had one and the paper work to prove it. 
 

 

mlr what did you do and how did you go about certification? Also what paperwork did you get? If there was any paperwork to prove it’s been signed off

There was some docs from Blitz, plus some tag/decal under the bonnet IIRC.

I was sceptical until the engineer and the RTA said they were happy.

This was a few years ago now, I would speak to your engineer first, and see what the RTA says about panel modifications now.

I did have flush bonnet pins installed as well, maybe that had something to do with it, maybe????

Would there be anyway possible to dig up the ADR certificate/email? Or anything ? Haha

The docs went with the car about 10 years ago, it has changed hands several times since I had it.

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
