cheap rego

I was just looking at the NSW laws on conditional rego for historic vehicles, it says you can register your car without paying tax or stamp duty or CTP, however it doesnt say anything about what the restrictions are. My cousin in SA has a few cars on SA historic rego and he can only drive once every 4-5 days or something like that was just wondering if anybody new more about it?

at $46 a year rego fee I could easily afford to own several cars and drive a different one each day

Wiring problem

I have in my shed a 1999 VS SS UTE 308 Engine and auto box.I really need to know if there is available an aftermarket wiring harness that will enable me to put this engine into my 83 K5 Blazer. I have the original wiring from the wrecked ute, but there is an awful lot of wires that I don`t need, and a nightmare to sort.The 4L60E auto is being replaced with a modified mechanical 700R4, so that part of electrics not required. Any help would be good.

whats the worst injury you've had while working on a car?

it seems every time i take a spanner to my engine i cut myself or bruise myself or crush one of my fingers between something or drop something on something, i even kicked a chock out from under the front wheel once and the car started to roll backward so i jammed my foot under the wheel to stop it (thinking it would be ok) - that hurt a bit. I was just interested to hear stories of peoples worst and/or most interesting injuries while working on cars, the one that hurt most for me was cutting my knuckle to the bone on a hose clamp, but i know there are better stories out there than that...and how many people let these injuries stop them from finishing the job?

Extractors vs Headers and Advice

Im looking at upgrading my exhaust system sometime soon. Im looking to go to something a little more beefy and better sounding. In the past I have always just replaced my own exhausts so I know little about what is available beyond stock and where the best places to go are...

I want the final sound to good without being excessively noisy. My first question is whether I should look for a set of extractors going to a single pipe or some headers with twin pipes leading to the back? I have heared from people that the 6cyls sound really good with the twin exhaust but i dont have anything to back this up. Id love some opinions on what works. What size pipes should I also get?
