LVVTA Cert check list

Hey team, 


So I was just thinking, I'd like to try for a cert at some point this year, but I'd like to be as prepared as possible. 
I know there's a few here that have gone through the process, what are somethings that you should always check first, like the simple failures.

 

Off the top of my head I can think of:

Heat shielding/blanket around turbo.

Driveshaft hoops? This one always gets me, unsure when they're required, and if it's in the front or rear half of the shaft?

Brake lines secured

 

Not looking for advice as such (I know, talk to your cert guy). 
But just little things that people have been picked up on that I could easily check before even going to the certifier.

 

 

My mods for reference:

Engine power increase to 300whp

Aftermarket turbo

Aftermarket ECU

Automatic to 6sp manual swap

Front and rear brake upgrade (To BL/BP larger rotors - 2/1 pot calipers)

17" wheels

 

They're the main items I think.

 

So off the top of my head I need to put a heat shield on the turbo, and secure the TMIC better, but can't think of other things?
Not sure if Brake Bias would be affected with the larger brakes, and whether that'd be an issue.

Have you got anything in the way of other suspension upgrades? I had my RS certed last year and they wanted an engineers report on the whiteline bump steer kit. Also had a bunch of suspension parts which were "too close" to other things and s**t like that but i cant even remember the specifics of that. I didnt need a driveshaft hoop and my tune came out at about 205kW on an aftermarket turbo.

I have the full whiteline bushings and bump steer kit. What did you do about the engineers report for that? Hadn't even thought of that. 
Has Bilstein suspension and some springs, no adjustable suspension or aftermarket sway bars etc.

Because i had to deal with the cert recheck during level 3 up in Auckland, just ended up putting the factory stuff back in :( i get 'legally' why they make it an issue but also real stupid.

 

 

I'd also get some heat shielding for the brake lines and clutch lines up above the turbo if you're factory location -  they made a point of that too

      You are absolutely right. Declaring past debts to government agencies, even those that have been repaid, can be an important part of the application process for a variety of reasons. It shows financial responsibility and transparency. The same can be said for gambling, even casinos, which you can read about at https://www.slotozilla.com/nz/minimum-deposit-casino/1-dollar should also operate transparently. Of course, there are black casinos on the Internet, but they are not popular, because you never know whether you will withdraw money or not. If the form asks for information about past debts, it is usually best to disclose it, as this reflects honesty and can help establish trust in your financial information. Always read the specific instructions on the questionnaire carefully, as they will tell you what you need to specify.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
       
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
       
      Cheers Shaun
