    VZ Calais
    hi, i have a VZ calais and 2 weeks ago i put blue LED lights in the little side lights in the headlights, there just show lights not vision lights to see the road and i got pulled over tonight and got a defect note to change them... i have gone past so many cops and never been pulled over with them, i also got told when i got them fitted that you can have all colours but pink and red because it looks to much like the back of the car. if anyone can help me with this would be very helpful thanks.

    I read in another thread that your not allowed blue and red cause blue and red are cop colours and also maybe not the colours of traffic lights lol cause there r stupid ppl on the road that will think your green little LED means floor it straight into the side of the car driving through the intersection

    I'd be checking for any major rust first, you don't want to buy a whole new engine only to find your current one is held in place with the power of thought and remnants of what was a mount. Otherwise some pics and more info would help.

    If you haven't yet you should post your ride here:
    VB - VC - VH - VK

    You will get more responses and ideas from here.

    '94 Holden Calais VR V8
    Hey everyone, I have been searching but haven't had any luck, my brother is looking at completing his VY R8 as he's done pretty much what he can N/A and we were looking to find what the rules are as having something out of the bonnet. We were told you can have like a filter hanging out by only about 4mm. Any ideas ? Were lookin at maybe blowing it. Also were in VIC.

    I think it's 14cm, and any moving parts have to be covered by a scoop or some ****.

    The answer to your question is in Victoria you are allowed to make one intake modification. Any more than this and the epa will get you regardless of adrs. Fitting a pod filter = one intake change, bigger throttle body = one intakek change so both together do not meet the requirements and are therefore defectable.

    Think of it this way.

    1. Old, probably tired engine.
    2. Add turbo and young? driver, who obviously wants lots more power and performance (why else would you fit a turbo?) in a car which never had brakes and handling to match the power it was built with when new.
    3. Out for first drive.
    4. Rod(s) exit block at warp speed/VN fails to take first bend at warp speed. (whichever comes first)
    5. Dead motor/driver (see 4).

    It's twice as long as half it's length.
    So that must mean his engine will last twice as long as half its age. :rofl2:
