I've just bought a 2003 2.0L JTS Selespeed and before I can get it registered mechanics apparently need to remove part of the manifold to access the engine number stamp for inspection. This work is being quoted at around 4 hrs and $400 or so.

Does this sound legit or is this mechanic trying to take me for a ride? Are the engine numbers in the JTS really so difficult to access?

Would love some help or advice,

Regards,

Hi Vsix,

Thanks for your reply, I'm fairly sure this model isn't a t-spark but it's probably in the same location.

I have purchased the car from interstate and here in .au the road registration authorities are aggressive in ensuring the identify of vehicles that are newly registered in a state to ensure it hasn't been built from stolen parts and then given legitimacy with a new registration.

It does look like a difficult location but I will suggest a mirror. I suspect they're keen to pull the manifold out instead as it's more $$$ for them.

Thanks again,

Danielle aka Tads
