On a turbo'd car, can the boost be adjusted temporarily so that you can pass emmisions testing during inspection? Are there any other solutions?

Are there any kind of emmisions ratings on the Ballistics kit? or Alpine kit?

Turbo charging does not neccessarily impact emissions for the worse. If tuned properly, it may very well run cleaner!

Somebody from New Jersey with f/i said they passed with flying colors, a year or so ago.

see! this is what you get when dumb priks start posting BS. This mis-informed poster has obviously just read Tommy's crap in the UFB thread.

I do however find it ironic that a supreme post whore answered your question and got it right!

Actually, i had been thinking about this topic for quite a while... I just found it interesting that I wasn't the only one wondering about this issue.

There will definately be a change in emmisions, i just wasn't sure how signifigant it would be.

Do some research about how emissions are tested in your locality.

Most only test emissions under idle and cruise conditions when a turbo is not generally creating significant boost. In theory you shouldn't see much of a change in emissions given the tuning is there.

Of course when you go WOT who knows what kind of sh!t you are pumping out the exhaust, but if you care about that you'd be better off and go hug a tree.

From both Maximum Boost, by Corky Bell, and Turbochargers, by Hugh McInnes:

A properly tuned turbo will not worsen emmissions output and in some cases may lower it.

Those are my two references, so if they both agree, I'd go with that. The key phrase there is: properly tuned . . .

All,
Yes, a properly tuned turbo system can lower emissions. It all depends on your air/fuel ratio at idle and between 1000 to 2500 rpm.
