leading on from the Challenger thread - out of (semi)idle curiousity.... what needs to be done to the challenger to make it pass the SVA and how much does it cost?

I'm assuming that it's going to be cheaper to buy a modded one from the US rather than buy an unmolested and mod over here, and what is the score with SVAing a modded motor?

Good luck with that. It needs to have all its original parts so that it still complies to FMVSS before it goes for the test.

My local test centre would laugh at it. Southampton are a bit more flexible but if it's outrageous they'll fail it as well.

like I said all idle curiousity ATM - not going to be in a position for a few years but want to get all the info WELL in advance... I guess that that means that trying to import a supercharged one with a borla (or similar) together with aftermarket alloys could well be a 'bit' of a problem lol.
