so it's modified enough to require an engineering certificate?

usually it's just a blue slip.

As Bob said, usually the vehicle is unregistered in one state, then you get a blue slip in NSW from an inspection place that can issue blue slips, then you can get it registered, armed with the blue slip, a receipt to show you legally purchased it, and the mandatory green slip.

You should call the RTA and advise them the situation. Last time I had an engineered car I was lucky to find that it was on the list of approved NSW engineers list. So check if that still exists. RTA will supply you a list of approved engineers to call with any queries. I believe most will want to look at the car first. (Which leaves you in a bit of no-mans-land).
IF the car is heavily modified some engineers won't touch it unless extensive mods are done and tested = $$$

So you basically need to drive it here on interstate rego, maybe use up the rego and then re register (blue slip) the car. If it passes blue slip you are sweet! If not you will need to fork out the big bucks for engineer cert. Maybe while you are driving it around in NSW on the interstate rego you can get a local engineer to check it out and get a price to have all the mods on the books?

I have driven a car from QLD to NSW and drove for ages on the QLD rego. Went through RBT's etc. Just told them its been recently purchased....It was a stock KE70 though lol

Good luck!!

P.S does this interstate car already have an engineers cert? may save a lot of headache

I wouldn't say out of state certs mean **** all. The theory is all that is required is that the mods certified match the current state of the vehicle (= an inspection), then it is just the normal blue slip, CTP and rego. The stumbling block would be either dodgy certification (in the first place) or there are more mods on the car that aren't certified. If they aren't obvious safety related or structural mods it shouldn't be too hard. A PITA I know, but this is why I'd rather buy a close to bog stock car if shopping interstate for a road car.
