  1. This pic Reminds me so much of
  2. They're not a bad little machine, air cooled torch is a drawback though. I find mine gets uncomfortable after not long at 100 amps. But then it's duty cycle isn't great at high amperage either, so not the end of the world.
  3. Yep, my FD still isn't registered on NZ roads (has a VIN though) and is, touch wood, about to be certed.
  4. When I looked into this, it's essentially an hourly rate, so will vary heaps between shops.
  5. Possibly talking to two different points here. Well aware of noise requirements, as my FD is a fresh import, and needs to meet 90dB for entry certification. Assuming that new vehicles with factory variable exhausts do not need to comply as in theory they will have some form of compliance as referred to in 2.7(4), like you referred to earlier. Tl;dr: Brand new fast cars from overseas can be loud.
  6. Ahhh right. Yeah nah totally did not get that from your original post, my bad.
  7. I'd hardly consider a video an accurate way to tell volume though. I'd consider them on par with my RX7, which while not being extraordinarily loud (certifier was happy with it as is) is certainly not 90dB. I'm guessing there is some form of allowance in the laws for OE vehicles to have the variable exhaust systems, possibly they're tested in normal mode.
  8. The new Mustang is fairly rowdy in race exhaust mode, I'd be surprised if it was 90dB. Again, Mustang definitely goes loud af at the touch of a button. Didn't seem to require any special conditions to get to.
  9. Wait, the guy was offended you wanted to pay more for it???
  10. Potentially not ethanol compatible hose? Would have not expected to crumble that badly!
  11. This is fucking sweet. So much potential.
