Yeah Anything that increases power supposed to have a Cert ( even an exhaust at a guess) how many actually do it maybe 1%, and as you say how would a tester know, The only time you may get caught out is if you are say in an accident with a high price euro and you are deemed at fault your insurance company may start looking for any reason to pull out AND a chipped ECU would be an out


If I'm not mistaken, an insurance company has to prove that the 'undeclared or illegal modification' actually had play in the accident in order to not pay out.

If it has a modification that should be certified and they are not certed then the vehicle is not road legal and therefore should not be on the road :) same goes for no Wofs/rego if it is not road legal then it should not be on the road AND if it was not on the road then it would not be involved in an incident :)

Correct, however there's more to it than that in terms of insurance contracts. Law is not all about 'common sense' the way you see it.

Cameron is right, my sister works in insurance an if it wasn't a factor in the accident then they will still cover you.

Mind you if the vehicle is not warranted nor regoed I doubt the owner could pay for insurance anyway:)

Not sure. Ring one of the LVV certifiers and ask them.

Yeah is a very "grey" area,

In the virm (general vehicles, section 13-1 pages 2&3)
It states in note 2 (on page 3) that LVV certification is always required for:

the fitting of a supercharger or Turbocharger as a modification,

or the upgrading of a supercharger, turbo or wastegate, or the rechipping of electronic engine control units on turbo vehicles.

It's under the second rule there that you could fall into the realms of LVV requirement as you have technically upgraded your turbo.
