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
