Insurance concerns?????

If you're not going to list your mods, then might as well not get insurance. The company will surely try to get out of paying any money by saying "we didn't know you had those mods, so we're not going to pay". Apparently Just Car are like this, hence you have to list everything.

As for needing comprehensive, I've heard that you do, but don't quote me on that.

yea i have been told with all banks that i initially went to get a loan was that you will need it comprehesivly insured as that way if you write it off and cant pay back the loan the bank will just take the money from the insurance claim...

also tell them everything thats on your car as r32skyliner said you had may as well not have insurance otherwise.

on that note i had better update my policy :D

thnaks 4 that fellas. What i ment b4 was by not listing all the mods the insurance may b cheaper! like i would list important things but stuff like race wheel an stereo wouldnt really worry bout. I know they wont cover u if its not lisited but im hardly plannin on have a smash... if u know wat i mean :D My mates pulsar sss got an exhaust system thats not covered, he plans on rippin it off if it comes 2 that in an accident.

2 questions that i would love some help on r...... If i take a loan out 2buy my skyline does that mean i need full compo insurance an the other is should i list mods or take the gamble without listing them!!!!

depends. if you take the loan out as a car loan then yes they want you to insure it.

but if you take the money out as personal loan then you dont need to do so..

With an automotive loan, you are required to take out comp insurance on any mortgaged property ( the car ) as the car is the security. To qualify for a personal loan you must display affordability and a proven repayment plan of some form of previous payment, or be assett backed. ( home owner/buyer ) if you don't supply a certificate of currency for a secured loan you will not be approved .

As for insurance!!!!!! There is a matter of whats called (duty of disclosure)

meaning if you do not list all and any mods and accessories to the enth degree ANY insurer can and will decline to honour any claim made for whatever reason.

These parameters are not negotiable from lenders and insurers.

Pay the money and get the correct coverage or change vehicles to a lesser risk vehicle.

    • Trail braking done right, should have the rear unsettled, such that you're actually turning the car by a noticeable amount WITH the brakes, and hence noticeably less steering input.
    • No you don't. Just no more driving in the wet, and clean your window manually before you drive
    • I'm not sure if they tick your boxes, but Haltech would be my pick. I'm an Adaptronic guy from way back, and Haltech acquired Adaptronic to basically get Andy, AND his IP on how he does things like fuel modelling etc.
    • Just on this, as there's a huge issue in your assumption Dose.   The logic you've given, is the same logic old school NA guys give for "needing back pressure" in an exhaust. If you free up an exhaust system, and keep injecting the same fuel in etc, at the same timing, you'll typically drop power. Freeing the exhaust will often make an engine want a little bit more timing, and even sometimes a little more fuel, but then it'll make even more power.   There's many mods people do and "get no extra power" when running a comparison on the same tune. Imagine a car tuned for 91, but now we say put 98 in it, see no difference. But as we now have 98 fuel, you can run more timing, and make more power, as the 91 was knock limited.   So just be very wary in your claim of "don't retune it and do a back to back and you'll see". The correct approach would be tune the car with stock manifold, swap the manifold to aftermarket, and retune it again. But no one wants to do that, and all the results we get are "this was stock, and this is manifold changed and tuned" and people put it all down as just the tune doing it.
    • Unplug ECU. Unplug TPS. Unplug boost pressure sensor. Now, all the wires, placing your ground (black) multimeter lead at the ECU end, measure resistance of the 5V line at the boost sensor plug. Then do the same to the TPS plug. Then do the same for all the other wires that relate to the TPS, or boost sensor.   All of your measurements should be very very low. You're looking to see if wiring is out of wack here.   Secondly, from memory on the R33 (not a neo motor, so I'm assuming an r34) the ground wire for the TPS and boost sensor are NOT equal to ground of the car/battery. IE, DO NOT connect ground of the sensor to the engine/body of car. You'll get a ground loop, and/or potentially screw shit up. In electronics, ground for a circuit, is not necessarily equal to ground of another circuit.   So this leads me to ask, when measuring your 5V, how are you getting 1.5V? Where are your multimeter leads touching for both the red and black lead on the multimeter?   If you're measuring power on the sensor wire, and putting ground on the car chassis or negative battery terminal, that could be all of your issues in "getting 1.5v". Electronics engineers can do some funky stuff with circuits, and when both sensors are on, it's enough laid to alter how the ECU is functioning.
