Emmisions testing the TT Notch in MD

Surprise surprise-she passed. Not by much tho
Hydrocarbons: state std=220 ppm; TT notch=219 ppm
CO: state std= 1.2 PCT; TT notch=0 PCT

The car went on the dyno and I was watching the fp gauge on the hood to see if he would spike it. Seemed ok going thru the gears. But then, a yellow screen came up that said "Vehicle Speed Excursion-Test aborted"
After that, he cleared the machine and sat the car at 2500 rpm for like 90 sec and then dropped it to idle. The car had been sitting around idling for like 45 minutes.

What does it indicate if your hc is high and CO is low in that kind of test?

Bottom line tho: PASSED

Now on to my 42# injectors (arrived), kirban fp regulator (arrived) and proM maf (still waiting for it to arrive) and delete the fmu.

Your location says Dallas Texas - Thats an Emissions County.

Fact is, in Dallas, even if you live OUT of Dallas county, and your nailed by the road side emissions sensors, they will MAKE you go to an emissions county inspection shop to get it inspected or they wont renew your registration.

How many people do you know of that have gotten nailed by those? I used to see them on the freeway entrances here in town a lot but never seem to come across them now days. By emissions county inspection shop does that mean just any place that does inspections within the country that has emissions restrictions?

It is a van that sits on the side of the road, usually on a freeway entrance or exit that by the time you see it you can not avoid driving by it. It has some sort of sensor that reads the exhaust gas as you drive by it, if you fail there is a camera that takes a picture. You then get a notice or ticket in the mail saying you failed the test and you must get your car emissions tested. The real kicker is that your car could be in perfect running condition but if you get that thing in the mail then you have to pay out of your pocket for that test again. So ODBII would help little in avoiding the cost of getting re-inspected for a "dirty" car in that situation.

There are people who live in houston and have never seen one before yet they have had them here in town for years. Chances are they are up there in Dallas and just in limited numbers like here.

Wow, I've heard of that exact same thing only using Radar for speeders in Phoenix. Same thing, van on the side of the road, takes a picture, mail you a ticket.

In Clark County (Las Vegas) on OBDII cars they don't even do a sniffer test, ever. That sucks.

Here in Houston where they do emissions tests, the ODBII cars just get hooked up to the computer and no sniffing is done.

wesleyt-Your turbo cobra must be so cool to drive! With all those rpms and a turbo pushing all the way from low, must be insane. Usually you see more torque than hp on the turbo 5.0s. The 4V really makes use of the boost. Is that stock compression ratio?

So that's around a 9cc dish, yes? I'm getting really psyched... mine is coming round the bend!

And I've seen the sniffer vans on more then a few occasions in Northern Virginia / DC Metro area... Up until now though, I didn't know what they were doing...

Actually I have seen TONS of people get nailed by those in Dallas. Also helps that a friend of mine owns a Inspection Shop, so I've seen the letters people bring in.

For example, if someone gets nailed by the road side inspection (Lasers across the road sensors), they get a nifty letter telling them that they will NOT get their registration renewed unless they report to a Emissions Check Safety Inspection Station. Even if you live outside the Emissions counties, they require you to get inspected in the emissions county. The law states (in Texas) if you live outside an emissions county and "commute" to work into an emissions county, and you get nailed by the road side check, that you must get it smog checked.

Kind of BS, but it happens. I just tell people if you see one of those unique white vans on the side of the road and you dont think you'll pass, TURN OFF YOUR CAR WELL BEFORE YOU GET TO IT AND COAST PAST IT, then turn on the car again.

At least in Dallas, I see those check vans EVERY other week. They ALWAYS put them on On Ramps to the freeway and are pretty easy to spot.
