Members dont see this ad

I know for sure it's not allowed in nsw :(

 

It is allowed in NSW check the RTA for the calculator and the NSW laws state that they are "Guidlines" which means you just have to find an engineer to sign off on it.

 

However, to engineer it in QLD I believe that it is possible, maybe instead of asking for everybodies opinion, get the facts from you local authority

good idea, but it does not matter one bit what we all think.

 

the only opinion that matters is the guy that is going to sign off you car.

 

because that is what the police and insurance company will look at.

 

unfortunately you are correct in that even from the authorities you can get 10 different answers for the same question.

 

here is a good place to start:

 

http://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/Safety/Vehicle-standards-and-modifications/Vehicle-modifications/Light-vehicle-modifications.aspx

 

read through alot of that, print stuff out, get out your highlighter to the important parts, so when you go and see DOT/engineer you look intelligent!

12a is capacitly x2 =2.4litres

 

rule is weight of car x3 = allowed capacity

 

you then need the "official weight" of a ke20, as listed in the qld modifications handbook. (ask engineer)

 

from memory it was approx 800kg, which would scrape through, but find an engineer and ring them.

Is the capacity multiplied by 2 because it's a rotary??

Yes, rotary engine displacement is multiplied by 2. BUT. NA and forced induction ratios for car kerb weight and cubic capacity is different. Naturally aspirated motors (in QLD) is kerb weight multiplied by 3, and forced induction (turbo/supercharged) is 2.5 times the kerb weight in cubic centimeteres. Your best bet if you are not sure is to ring up an engineer who has the books and paperwork shit to make it all legal and legit, and ask him if and can it be done.

Forgive me, ive had a few beers.
