You are planning a complex one engine Swap for a distinct performance increase? The plan is not to put the engine from the 316 in a BMW 320i, but rather the V12 from the 850Ci and that with bi-turbo charging? Then it may be necessary that the checkpoint the confidence with which you have hopefully discussed the project before loosening the first screw, a so-called Fatigue strength report or Fatigue strength report demands of you. There are a few names for this, but essentially they all refer to the durability of the body. But what is an operational stability report?

The aim of the report is to find out how individual vehicle components behave after thousands of test kilometers. Is there any Material fatigue under extreme loads or are there special places where the component is heavily loaded? As a rule, the DEKRA the answer. Such extensive fatigue tests are suitable for obtaining national and international approvals for components. The DEKRA experts carry out these strength tests and test the components for use in and on vehicles. In this way, durability is determined according to the desired requirements. This, however, with regard to components in mass production. And for private?

Exam in the private sector?

A strength report for the body is given in the event of a significant increase in performance (is divided into performance increases of up to 20%, up to 40% and over 40%) usually required. If the increase in performance is to be 60, 70, 100 or even more percent, then the limit is the Registrability that the average tuning workshop offers for modern vehicles. You come to that extent only with a Individual reports continue. If you are forced to have such an opinion drawn up privately, you should definitely have one big chunk of money be planned. With such an entry there is also a Emissions certificate Duty that the engine with the installed components (e.g. turbocharger, manifold, MBK, displacement etc.). Unfortunately there are still a few entries without these reports, because you can make a lot of money with it. But the car should someday ensured be OR it happens one Accidentthen it can get very uncomfortable.

Tuning can be a problem!

Every now and then there are possibilities without an emissions certificate to get the registration. But you have to argue sensibly. As a rule, the Emission category of the donor car also received in the new body, if the engine and the exhaust system used are original and no tuning having. However, it may therefore be necessary for the auditor to certificate of achievement needed. Only the auditor himself can explain whether this scope of discretion still exists. By the way, they are too noise and the new one top speed with such a conversion exactly check. From the right one Bremsanlage not to mention of course. It has to be adapted to the performance and the vehicle as well as all the rest. Is a extreme motor swap planned, but then we can tell you that one individual acceptance to Paragraph 19 (2) / 21 of the STVZO inevitable is. And in terms of that Fatigue strength also includes the one especially long test drive by the examiner. So make sure that everything fits exactly, harmonizes with each other and is working.
