I have a 88 lx that was a 4cyl car that i converted to a 8cyl, I took it 2 inspection this past weekend and it failed really bad! I was just wondering if its possible that the vin# came up as a 4cyl and they ran the test based on the vin, cause my readings were off big time! Another thing i was wondering about, if you run a high octane fuel will that throw off the test? Just looking for opions on how to pass the great sniffer!

Inspections are done by the VIN on the car.
You will need to find a friendly private garage to pass the sniffer test. The state inspector will be looking for 4 cyl's worth of emissions and you have 8 cyl.

Switching VIN's is a BIG NO-NO..Where are you in NJ? We have the best state goverment money can buy.. If you in Northen NJ, YOU can past for about $100 :joy:

just got back! failed again for just co%, anyway while i was ther they told me to go and get a collector car registration and they'll give me a triangle inspection sticker!The only thing is you can only drive 3000 miles a year,no biggy! I wish i was close to north nj, i'm in central right next to great adventure.
