    Dreaded New Jersey Emmissions Test -- Anyone Know how to Pass w/ Bolt-ons?

    Hey guys,

    I had a quick question. Specs of my car are as follows below:

    2003 WRX
    Aftermarket Uppipe (TurboXS I believe)
    Aftermarket twin-dump downpipe (Bosal)
    Bosal Single Tip Catback (aka SPT Catback)
    No engine management

    I have inspections coming up next month and I am dreading that I will fail emmissions horribly due to my car no longer having 2 of them. I contacted Rich from Precision Tuning and he stated that engine management, particularly the AccessPort, may be cheaper than having him uninstall my aftermarket stuff, reinstall stock only to uninstall the stock to get my aftermarket stuff back (upwards of $330 per install x 2 = $660. Ouch.) I was wondering if anyone from NJ with aftermarket bolt-ons such as mine has experience with inspections, particularly passing them, with help from the AP. I have till the end of November to do mine, so I have time, but I wanted to get my options out in the open first. Thanks for your help fellaz!

    The above option is going to be my plan. Get the AP, you will be very happy and your car will feel much better, then go get tested at any location you want.

    Edit: By used and it will be even cheaper. Should be easier now that a new version of the AP is coming out.

    Why not get engine management? It's something you should get anyway and this emissions test should be the impetus for the EM.

    If not, I agree with the bribing of a shop.

    it's called "Guaranteed to Pass", you have to add it to a tank, then run the tank through, then fill up and get inspected.

    I have a friend who will pass cars in a more legitimate matter for his friends. Plug in the scanner, and go for a nice easy ride until the monitors are all "ready" and not showing any codes. Then take it easy back to the shop plug in and run the inspection and the car passes.

    Cobb Stage 2.5 here, catless too, one way or another, I'll find a way to pass.
