    Default How To Pass CT Emissions Testing Without Fear

    Just simply assure that your vehicle is in great running condition, all emission device installed, and engine properly warmed.

    Late 2008 I barely passed because the car was running lean, and an aged sport catalytic converter in play. I passed with NOx just 1 point below limit.

    Over the winter of 2008 to 2009, I removed the HKS 550cc injectors and replaced with new PTE 660's (to complement PT61mm turbo), new Catco 3" cat from ebay, removed the full HKS IC setup and replaced with 31X12X3 IC and custom piping.

    For emission testing Nov. 2009, I zeroed all the settings on the AFC, dial all knobs on the VPC to 12 O'clock, verified that all emission device were properly functioning, and set the AFPR to 30 PSI with vac. hose connected.

    Off to test station with no perturbation or angst, engine warmed, and voila, car passed with aplomb

    Now, maybe I'll turn up the boost and see how the car performs again..

    Sniffers?

    The bad engine is out and the good engine is in, many thanks to Shaeff. Still need to do some minor repairs, replace the entire suspension, and do a lot of clean-up, but she's running!

    In NY they test cars 24 years and newer, 96 and up gets plugged in, 95 and older is dyno and sniffer.

    Well this is as of a couple years ago when i had my license.

    Wow, that sucks. Upstate, they plug in cars from 96 and after, but 95 or older only get a visual inspection. If it looks like you have a cat, and it looks like your exhaust is complete, you're golden.

    I've never been to California and I've never experienced the EPA rules their, but from my experience here in CT it sure does feel like the eastern extension of CA .
    The technician performed both visual and the roller / sniffer test; check gas cap for vacuum, popped hood to check for emission devices, and then the roller.

    okayyyyyyy.....anyone with CT specific info?...as requested.

    i just failed my emissions yesterday...now searching the forums and inspecting/troubleshooting/getting codes to see whats wrong...

    Hydrocarbons were 333ppm, limit is 167. CO was 7.25%, limit is .53. NOx was 53ppm, limit is 1167.

    from what i have gathered so far - i'm most likely running rich. so i'm hoping codes will shed some more light tomorrow....sry, not trying to threadjack - just looking for CT specific info related to topic. thanks.

    i went to newlondon put 50$ in the ashtray and told the portorican testing it "its yours if you pass it" the thing sat running on the dyno until it passed exactly at the limit, it did take a while
