Looks like I'll need to get that supercharged M3 done before next year!

For an exhaust, it states "Substitution or replacement of components such as camshafts, carburettors, engine management systems, exhaust systems, etc. must not be carried out unless it can be demonstrated that the vehicle will continue to meet the appropriate gaseous and noise emission standards"

If the emissions test is waived in QLD, does this mean it only needs to comply with noise standards?
Yes, it still needs to comply to the noise standards. There is a link through those documents on the tests involve for the noise test that measures a db level that it needs to comply at certain rpm whilst the car is stationary so that it will comply the dry by standards which is harder to measure. There is a table in there stating the db level require for each car model.

As far as emission standards, it still needs to comply just that a test is not necessary.
