Got Past THE MAN,Big Brother,the fuzz,whatever.

After agonizing over the new Mass inspection laws, i passed on Saturday!! Added some "Emissions Pass" to teh tank, drove around for 30 min, and pulled into the shop- they thought for sure i would fail when they heard the smurf rev up. The tech even high fived me when the new sticker printed out! This with a header, stock carb with 1/2 the hoses plugged or not hooked up (o2)! Have 2 years before the next time! WOOHOO!! Pony carb and new Thorley here I come!!!

Congratulations, I think alot of passing is the Tech who does the test.. from what I have seen in watching 2 inspections If the tech is slow in reacting to the curve on the screen you're screwed. I good tech can do it
in one shot, Where I have seen others have to run it up 5-10 times.

glenn-
i agree 100%-there was a kid starting the inspection, but when it came time for the emission run, the owner walks over and says "let me give it a go-I'll make it pass". Sure enough, one pass thru the curve and it all is well. He came darn close, but was shifting it just right- not too high, and not boggin down either.

Re: Got Past THE MAN,Big Brother,the fuzz,whatever.

Ahhhh.

God bless Upstate NY. Hey, don't most of NY's emissions land in CT/MA?

In a mexican accent, "Emissions sticker? We don't need no emissions sticker!"

And to think, there is NO plan to ever have testing. God, I hate/love this state.

p.s. don't mean to rub it in

Re: Got Past THE MAN,Big Brother,the fuzz,whatever.

i hate to tell you guys but here in Arkansas there is no
emissions testing. in fact vehicle inspections were stopped
last year. the law can pull you over for safety violations
though. i figured watch out for junkers with no brakes etc.
but drivers are still dangerous- vehicles seem to be doing
well though. go figure
