Hey guys...

I got done by the cops last night at Heathcote whilst i was on my way up to echuca.... They are going to report me to the EPA for noise polution which means ill need to take it to a EPA office for a check...

Im not 100% sure if the cop will infact report me cause he wasnt convinced it was too loud or not..

If I get reported I really really need to borrow a standard exhaust system from the cat back... I dont have a cat and i dont want to get busted...

Please guys help me out

cheers fellas, its much appreciated.... Its great to see that we all have people to lean on when we run into a bit of trouble. It looks like I can borrow an exhaust off one of a few nice people from here (many thanks). I have a HKS foam mushroom filter... I might even need a standard airbox aswell eh?

I dont think you will need a standard airbox. You will need one however, if you have an aftermarket intercooler aswell, as you are only allowed to have ONE induction modification to your car (or so ive read).

Good Luck.

if its just noise then u just go to a noise tester. sometimes u need to go to the epa testing site which is in macloed. They will test for carbon monoxide emissions and sound and they will pop the bonnet to check for BOV's and the like. Ur HKS mushroom filter is illegal FULLSTOP. as to work it is oiled, the oil contains hydrocarbons which makes them illegal. The only type of pod filter that is legal is paper/cotton type that is dry, not oiled. Like apexi, this means that K&N is illegal as well (also oiled). I have a standard airbox with filament if u need it. My epa took about 6 months to arrive and i had to go to macload. Even after taking 6 months to arrive it gives u about a month of notice, So plenty of time. Just wait for it to come. Don't forget that u will definetely need a cat.

as stated u only need to worry about other shit if they call u in... this will just be a noise test which has to be done at a registered tester so dont stress about other things as yet.

    • I do have a tiny tiny misfire occasionally but I think it's because I got a little fuel down into a plug tube so I'll pull the coils out and see if I can dry those out. 
    • Ok, so here the embarrassing 'fess up' post. Here's the crack, or broken part of the old valve cover. Pretty obvious break and in hindsight it's quite the face palmer 🤦‍♂️ but let me explain why I didn't think this was a problem. This side part of the valve cover is an additional piece, it protrudes from the main valve cover and it's also where the fuel rail mounts.....  You can see the rail at the bottom and you can see this external piece hanging off the side of the cover. It almost looks sandwiched in this pic.  Here's another cover with that side piece ...  On top of this, when looking at the inside of the cover, there were no openings(*) for that section. So I really just thought I'd broken some crispy plastic mount for the fuel rail.... Until somebody drew my attention to the air openings at the BOTTOM of the cover, not INSIDE the cover. So, I had a ginormous PCV leak. The cover needed to go and I should have taken everybodies advice and got a new one in the first place. The original one is just fried, its really brittle. It was nice to have the new one be really snug in position and the screws were slightly tight to do up which was completely different to the original ones that almost undid themselves.    
    • Pulled out this pile of shit, will be refreshed soon enough. Had coolant hit my face and I accidentally tasted it.  It's sweet.
    • Looks awesome. Well done. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca! 
    • This video is great, the enthusiasm is infectious and it's kind of cute. It's great to see these things being used properly on track, it reminds me of track days of old. It is a bit funny seeing everyone so excited about Skylines, whereas here they're all considered a bit nuggety or shitboxy. If this seems odd to you mr OP, imagine all of us being this giddy about seeing 30 C5 Vettes on a track at once place, full of influencers taking their videos and posting for clout. That said, you did a great job conveying the fun and excitement of a track day, getting out there and just having some damn fun.
