where is the FMIC holes ??  Is it new (battery tray or somewhere) or is it just where the standard intercooler pipes used to run ?

lol.. you can get FAILED for that? FMIC holes? mine is drilled slightly underneath the fuse box thingy on an ECR33.. WOF has never ever checked or considered that place to be FAIL.

depending where they are cut yep you can, thats why most seem to follow the standard intercooler holes.

dont know if you could rivet. but weld a plate on might be an option. i think the rule was that it had to be 150mm from the strut tower?

Not sure rivit would work or pass. depends on how much rust there is where the standard battery tray is (they tend to rust up a bit over the years)

cut, sand , weld a plate + paint it. looks good and problem should be solved for WOF's

From what I understand of it, if you reinforce around where the hole is cut you shouldn't have a problem.
A mate has just recently had to cut holes in his ute for FMIC mounting, so just cut a 4" hole, and then welded a short section of 4" pipe into the hole to bring the strength back up.

The other thing thats always nice to do is to put some rubber (split vacuum hose, door or boot trim) on the edge to help protect the pipe and make the hole look tidier. (but you should always use a hole saw thats only a little bit bigger then it needs to be)

This is usually only an real issue on cars with airbags as it can effect the sensors

Hey mate.

All you can really do is get it cert'd or take it somewhere else.

I got that put on my cert plate when I got my car certed so iv never had any issues.

Some people will fail it and some will pass it, depends who you take it to. My boss wont pass them without a cert, and myself I have not had to do a check on one yet. There is nothing actually clear on this issue in the virm, its a big grey area, and leaves no grounds to dispute it,  its basically left up to the inspector to decide.

If I can get you some info to dispute it ill let you know.

Hope this helps.
