Would a surge tank need a cert?

It will be in a street legal commodore, just wandering if it needs to be on the list of things to get certed. Looking at something similar to # 481839185 . Cheers

There is no list of things to be certed. If your car has a single modification to be certed, then they will check the entire vehicle (except for specialist areas like disability mods). They need to ensure that the whole combination works together.

I was meaning "my list", as its growing rapidly I am toying with the idea of just throwing in a pump without the surge tank

Best idea would be to complete all the mods and get the car road worthy then take it for a cert. It's the same price doesn't matter how big ya list is.

Yea guess your right, then when it goes in for the cert they can fill me in on what I need to fix or all things going well give me the big tick

AFAIK it doesnt need a cert , although if your entering any motorsport then those rules apply. You will need it sealed off from the cabin with a metal firewall.

That's what I mean.either you put in a pump and no tank, or you put in a surge tank.doesn't matter, either way they will check your fuel storage and delivery. No difference to the cert process.

Oh and unless your doing curcuit events I would'nt bother with a surge tank.
