I know there are all these posts about the EGR system and emissions in general, but I'm curious about specifics. I m curious if anyone from PA has tried going through emissions with "other then complete stock" setup.

What I wanted to know was:
1)What was your setup?(race header, chipped, flashed, etc.)
2)EGR disabled or enabled?
3)What kinda of emissions was done(visual, odb-II, or both)
4) and of course....outcome.

Im asking cuz i wanna know if i will be able to get by with my setup(its f/i, but im not worried about that part) and just using PRP to flash the ECU to slgithyl altered stock settings, or if flashing will fail it test wise.

any input welcome.thanks

Well, we did... I've since upgraded.



I'm going to try this week without a cat at all. Last time the guy didn't even open the hood. He just obd2's it and glanced under the car with it about 2' off the ground. My inspection was up yesterday. D'oh!

I sold the ac3 to subliminal kid, then, within the month before I was to fit my new turbo, I hydrolocked my motor when pittsburgh flooded (dang bomz cold air intake). I got stuck in traffic in 1'+ of water. Then I had to build the motor from the oil pan up by hand, outside, in my gravel parking lot. 8.2:1's, ARP's, and eagles all the way...

It was hell for 3 months or so, but totally worth it as a learning experience. How many jetters can say they personally torqued their con rod bolts to spec.

No, I didn't get the old XCal2 back yet. You sent it right?

Your Pro Racer upgrade is out for delivery and you should have it today.
