Strange, people on here have said that they are good with mods.

They wont insure my car with a Y pipe and a cobb flash full stop.

They said point blank, no engine/exhuast mods in combination.

:confused:

I got same response. Y pipe OK but no ECU mapping cover. I will therfore run motor stock on the public road with Y pipe I have cover for this.:bawling:

That doesn't sound very encouraging. I'm having a Y pipe fitted next week but would have considered a remap a little later.

I wasn't sure if it was necessary to inform them about just a Y pipe - what's the view on that point?

I have a quote for 800 from another company for COBB anfd Y pipe but a flash is omnly 10minutes to do so will just flash when at track or strip and norm on the road rather than pay 400 extra:thumbsup: beauty of the COBB:smokin:

I spoke with Admiral this morning - Y-Pipe extra £23
also they were happy to quote this combined with ECU map . The bracket that I asked for was 11 - 25% power increase which I felt was enough. That was quoted at £53.40 on top of the exhaust.
Hope that this helps.

Ha it seems all Admiral customers are not equal - I had a tuned ZXTT with +100 BHP insurance cover from Admiral - +100 was the max they'd allow - not bad as that was 33% up on standard.

It will be the Cobb that did it.

I have just insured my GT-R which is now at the HPC :D for £510 fully comp, protected NCB, multi-car with my Land Cruiser Amazon VX 4.2, with the Y-Pipe declared.

They see the Y-Pipe as cosmetic - makes it sound nicer :)

In case of a claim, the assessor would be able to see the y-pipe, but he wouldn't see the remap unless the car was properly examined, but as the pipe is a declared mod it isn't a problem. So it's up to you what you tell the insurance company. If the car passes the first glance from the assessor, ie; you told them you've got a y-pipe and he can clearly see it, if the rest of the car looks unmodified, then he'll more than likely leave it at that. If he starts spotting undeclared mods, such as, injectors, intake mods, blah blah blah, then you'll be up the creek.
