I've just had the block mod and belts done on my ST.

 

I need to inform AF about the blockmod but I'm a little concerned about who to speak to as when I added a group A to my policy I had to pay extra, eventually I did get that extra refunded. Who do I speak to that will know what the block mod is?

I don't think you would need to inform them. It's not a performance upgrade

It's an "engine modification" though, if it gets wrote off (touch wood) they would surely compensate for it though.

If you don't declare it, it hasn't happened

I wouldn't tell my insurance company about it, it's not something they would need to know about, they also wouldn't understand what it was

Greenlight knew what it was, and there was no additional cost.

Are people really suggesting you shouldn't declare mods? You're modifying from the original spec, irrelevant that it's not strictly performance enhancing...

You should always declare it, it means that if you do ever need a new engine due to a fault accident then you can get another shimmed block as AndyC found out.

If you refer to my original post I said I don't THINK you'd need to notify them I didn't say he shouldn't. I haven't declared my block mod but I will give them a ring in the morning. And I don't want this to sound like I'm being :censored: and come across the wrong way bud :thumbsup:

I was told today from Greenlight that you do need to tell them about the block mod

I was asking about some other mods and asked the question

Added to policy without any charge
