Just grab a stock muffler from something that ran an SR20 from a wrecker, and then chuck it in the bin afterwards. Should only cost a few bucks!

Say what now???

Yes you will need a noise test, but since when have you needed an emission with a STD ecu??


The noise tests are cheap. No more than $60-100. You might find where the noise tests are done on the Vicroads web site(never use the call centre, you'll know more than try do) or at a branch. They are mostly exhaust shops. I know Daalder exhausts in dandenong did/do them, that's where I got the 11 done. Was about $40 from memory but that was 6 years ago.


With the emission test I'd ask JC where he recomends to go. Never had to do one myself.



dunno man jc said he wants a noise test and a emissions test, but i think he can do the emissions one , just gota find a muffler and get the noise one done, i think he just wants me to sort it all out then take the car to him and hes just going to do the brake test and tick everything off, well i hope it goes like that haha, still i gota get some cash together all this and that gona cost me, done some over time tonite ,and probably give working on the car a miss this weekend and do more over time ,hopefully start geting a few more bits and pieces.

Sorry but the varex is 100% illegal. You won't pass a blue slip with one (not sure what you call blue slips in Vic?), you won't pass engineering with one, and if the cops pull you over and spot it, you'll probably get a defect.

I've got no beef with you running one, I had one on my Subaru until the novelty wore off, but there's no sense in wasting your time hoping it'll pass when it's unlikely they'll even get the test equipment out when they see it.

thats what i was thinking haha , but will break balls if i turn up there and he says change the muffler and come back :bash:


XON's right Ryan. They know what they are now it's harder to get away with them. After all the BS you've gone through that's the last thing you want when your going for your inspections. You want it to pretty much pass the first time.

Personally I'm not a fan of that muffler. I don't see the point because you have the turbo you can still keep them quiet and have good flow.
