There is one exception:
“3. A vehicle first registered anywhere between 1 February 1977 and 31 March 1980 may be fitted with a second pair of dipped-beam headlamps”

My guess is the VTNZ guys assumed it was originally like that.

Here are the rules  https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/lighting/headlamps

Wondering if someone has a smart idea (cert happy)to overcome my engine fouling on bonnet/seat in my liteace. I planned on dropping the engine but I don't want the sump to be lowest point of van and it's actually ideal where it is.

an idea I had was spacing the entire lot up with a 15-20mm flat bar continuously around red line with holes drilled so everything uses original fastener holes with longer bolts. Is there an alternative material that could be used that's a bit easier for average Joe to bend

Would probably be easier  cert wise to put a lump in to clear the part you need to, or move the engine, rather than space the whole thing up

This is a common problem with 1uz into hiaces, the throttle body hits the lid right under the drivers seat/ buckle anchorage. The best way to sort those out is move the throttle body to the other side 

 

This is a fairly common issue with certs- people will modify safety related things to clear non safety related things, and create issues for cert later . Like instead of modifying a sump, moving the rack instead or cutting big lumps out of crossmembers 

 

Is it hitting the timing cover only?

I did look for an off the shelf shortened and winged sump and pickup as I read they have ground clearance issues putting 4age into the lotus 7 kit cars but couldn't find anything. It's a mater of the least amount of work which is modding seat rather than new mounts and sump/pickup.

I could cut a slot the running same direction as timing cover and still be atleast 100mm away from seatbelt mount and seat rail which is the only mounting on left side of drivers seat?

There's an additional skin below which has a bulge in exactly the wrong place which isn't helpful

Or start with a Super Custom/possibly just use Super Custom engine covers

Yeah was going to say that but I couldn't remember if the SC covers fit on a normal hiace, from memory the rear firewall has a bump in it that others dont as well? Theres a few advantages using a SC to start with I think

Yeah good point about the bell housing cover, unsure if it'll bolt into a a tradie Hiace without trimming the floor back a bit.

Super Custom (1KZ at least) has the same engine bay and covers as the factory 1UZ ambulance.

I did look into whether the engine covers differ for the different engine (y series stands straight up as opposed to the slanted 5k) but part numbers are the same for both chassis. Part number does differ for floor shift vs column however so could look into that to see if it bulges higher or not.

Depends 

If the car has had an engine swap= have to apply emissions standard 

https://lvvta.org.nz/documents/standards/LVVTA_STD_Exhaust_Gas_Emissions.pdf

Emissions standard requires operational PCV system in a lot of cases 

 

If the car has a modified original engine= emissions standard not required to be checked

Any tips for an operational PCV system when running ITBs? Can I run the recirculated gases into each trumpet (somehow) or do I have to drill the manifolds?
