WTF?! I went with my friend to go pick up his car from the inspection place and I asked if $12.50 was a state-wide inspection price. The guy was like "yea...until next month (he meant september)...then it's goin up to $28". Then he told me the reason was because they're starting to do emissions tests starting in Sept. Well...that...just...sucks.

Do the Comptech axle backs pass emissions for you guys? (I don't know what the TX standard is gonna be...but I just wanna know in general if people are passing with the CTs or not)

Thanks!!

i don't think you need one now. but i could be wrong. that doesn't make sense since they blew a sh*t storm about not having license plate frames...now you don't even need theh plate? gahd! texans....

i just hope my CTs pass....

I have CT cat-back,header and SC and I pass Emissions with flying color!except for my tint! The first time I had it inspect I had to rip the 2 front tint off B4 they would pass me.Then I got to know some people who knew people who did state inspection without giving you a hard time about your tint!:D

Where are you located in Texas? They've been doing emission testing in the DFW area for years. If you have a newer model car (96 or newer), they just hook an OBD scanner to your car's computer. Otherwise, you get the sniffer test.

BTW: The no front plate legislation did not pass. You're still required to have them.

well...i don't think they're gonna take this as far as comin' out with "T.A.R.B." =P but yea...we're one step closer to being screw. i heard that the 98-00 accord has different emissions standards (vs. the 01-02). i think it's the "LEV" vs. the "ULEV"...i dunno though. anyway...the guy @ the shop told me that it would be done according to what year/make/model car you have. not just a general standard...so i'll keep my fingers crossed.
