Sorry cameras busted atm but you can kind of see it on this photo if you look at the breather lines. there is a small piece of smaller tube in between with the cable tie looping in and out of it. ||=|| like this if you are looking at it from the top.

Bored yesterday so made a couple of videos:

Dash LED's in the dark

Trying out my 2 new cameras. A Sony DSC TX30 and a Rollei 5S action cam (similar specs to gopro but half the price)

Just have to decide if i like mounting positions.

Car failed a warrant today because it has an intercooler. And intercoolers have to be certified according to vtnz. Last time I checked gtr's have intercoolers from the factory. Now I have to go somewhere and prove that the intercooler is a standard part.

LVVTA;

Front-mounted intercooler  The front structure of the vehicle has not been modified, and
 the front bumper structure is unaltered (cosmetic changes are permitted), and
 the components do not present any forward-facing external projections, and
 none of the frontal impact components have been removed where the vehicle is
required to comply with a frontal impact occupant protection standard (see note on
page 1).

Sounds like it. Double check with the standards above and if all good as you say then go back and tell him he's an idiot! Another VTNZ inspector giving themselves a bad name...and these are the ones who are meant to know a thing or two about the rules.

Definitly no mods. I've never needed to do anything to the front end. It hasn't changed in the 3 1/2 years I've owned the car. All uses standard mounts. I'm guessing he didn't know a gtr had a full front mount compared to the small 25t intercooler. 90% of my warrants have been at vtnz  so you would think someone else would have picked up an issue. Most of the time the guys are fine and only ever had one issue with car tinting but that was because vtnz light meter was not calibrated which was easy to prove. I prefer going to them because I can watch the car through as I like keeping an eye on my car. I think the guy just took exception to the fact it was a modified car and tried to find a reason to keep it off the road.

One of the worst place to take car for a WOF as they don't allow you in and have a closer look. Find a normal WOF place where they allow you to go under the hoist.

I personally do a visual inspection when car is up on the hoist during WOF - I take the chance to check all bushes, links, drive shaft bolts, brake pads, brake lines, oil leak etc

Sorry cant help with Intercooler issue but can you not get Nissan to confirm that GTRs comes with a bigger cooler from factory?

Im just going to take it to where i get the work vehicles done. He has done it before but means taking it to work on gravel roads. Just annoyed at how someone can complain when they obviously dont know the car. He also turned around and said i need a cat converter in exhaust and that my exhaust pipe from turbo is too big. Nothing about turbo though. Also said that my tyre were stretched which was a fail. All of this has not changed since i brought the car. Guess im just venting
