We don't need Rockstars help to mod the game, GTA3 to San Andreas proves that, just like these guys, they've created a program which can read the file structure of GTA IV on the console versions and extract Texture and Data files all by themselves. As long as nothing major changes, then the structure should work for the PC version, once the export and import of files into the archives is sorted then all it's down to then is modding skill and making sure everything neatly matches.

That mod up there is a simple text based mod, they've extracted the car text data which contains how it acts and modded the value for it's weight and damage, made that certain car indestructable and weight a tonne whilst keeping the speed, same could be done via the Cheat Device on the PSP games.
