Legality Of 4Ac In Ke70

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

just though I would try my luck and see if anyone on here knows the laws regarding engine swaps in SA My Car is currently running a 4AC so Do I need to go through regency to get the engine number changed on my rego papers? I picked up an application to change the engine number from the motor reg but I am worried if I lodge it and regency disapproves i will have to get my car inspected and that's something I don't want to go through. Has anyone else registered this swap in Adelaide without going to regency? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

pretty sure a single cam 1600 replacement (ie. the 4AC) is an inspection job (1600 twin-cam needs to be engineered) - at least, that was the case last time I looked which was probably 6 ish years ago.

You'll need to book it in. It's a "roadworthy" inspection so the car will have to be in good shape.

3K/4K can go to 5K with just a phone call to advise the new motor.

 

 

There's a bulletin specifically related to engine changes in Corollas - can't remember the number though. Not sure if bulletins are available online now .. they might be.

 

cheers,

Slapper
