how thorough are the tests???.... if they are done at low RPM's and don't do a visual I think a cat might be able to just sneak within the guidelines.

i dont understand why everyone keeps saying that the bluebird det wont pass inspection. that is a false statement mine passed with no cat on the car. as long as the car is tuned properly u should have no problem. my motor has about 32,000 miles on it, that could be the reason.

Joe -

What are the exact emissions tests that your DET passed? Here in Ohio, in metropolitan areas, we have E-Check, which sniffs your exhaust over a wide rev range. I'd really be curious to know what tests are standard in your area. I would run a cat, as I am environnmentally concious; does the DET have all the EGR stuff that the DE has (forgive my ignorance)?

Also, you DET guys, can/do you still run A/C and all the goodies? Do the UR pulleys fit the DET?

TIA again

i said that because this is what ive been hearing..i want to know what i could do before i drop this in and have everything done, then realize i needed to do something different... in MA, i believe they put something over your exhoust pipe, then run it up to third gear, maybe about 30 mph i think,, and then do it 2 times more and follow the same accleration that has been put on a graph from your first pass...at least this is what i thought they do..if anyone has any other info it would be great,,..thanks

Come on, you guys, we're really interested in this stuff - a DET transplant is a whole lot cheaper than Hotshot, F-Max, or JWT turbo kits.

It depends on what emissions standards your state has. In AZ we have IM-240. You have to pass a visual and a sniffer. If they determine that an emissions device is missing or not working due to being tampered with, you just failed. It is not a false statement in that situation. Now, if they don't enforce the rules that strictly where you live, I say go for it.
