    NJ Emission question

    Anyone in NJ have the TurboXS Turbo Back Exhaust?

    I am curious if this setup passes emissions, since it removes all cats and just has one high flow cat.

    Thanks in advance.

    They could still do an emissions test. Either they'll have you go to a place with an awd tester or they'll do it the way they used to... in neutral, and manually rev the car up to 1600 and 2500 rpm and do the test while not under load.

    I guess my question should have been
    If they are able to test the car at the facility, will the car pass w/ the turbo back exhaust installed?

    Thanks

    i used to work doing NJ inspection

    anything that is AWD will just get a RPM test, (the just rev the car at 2k or so

    ANY muffler other then stock will fail (so if you have the turbo back, just put the stock axle back on to bring it to DMV)

    as long as they see you have 1 cat you will be ok, (as long as it passed the emissions test)

    anything else you wanna know i will answer the best i can

    What about the local independent shops that do inspections in NJ. Will they be as stringent on the full exhaust setup?

    I was going in for an inspection to get it done so I have a full two years before I need inspection again, I'd just like to know if in your opinion I'd have a better shot at a local garage passing me than the state facility...

    Thanks

    i donno really, they started that after i quit, my boy that still works there was telling me, its not with the whole exhaust only the muffler, the only reason why i can think that they started that was because we couldn't fail people for loud exhaust (like honda's and stuff) so i think they just made up the new rule about the muffler, but it always depends on where you go, some people are cool and some aren't

    I was planning on getting the MRT Turboback exhaust because it retains at least a "high flow" catalytic converter. I wonder if it'll pass with the other 2 cats removed. With my old turbo Honda, I was running lean with a crappy high flow cat and I still failed the world.
