Default Passing State Ref w/ Vishnu Pulley?

Hey guys,

My car is completely stock except for gauges and a Vishnu Main Power Pulley. Will I be able to pass my state referee test with it?

Need to know ASAP...

Chris

You'll certainly pass the emissions test (well, at least you won't fail because of the pulley) but it's unlikely even a referee will notice it. It's black, and it's hard to see. Technically I suppose he could fail you on the visual, but the odds of that are slim.

You'll be fine with a pulley as that isn't a modification to any emissions equipment. That's like if you had spark plug wires like magnecor and they decided to try and fail you (trust me they won't) .

When you go to the refferee they test you with a 31 step test that is the same as what the EPA uses to certify new vehicles emissions compared to the 3 step one used at the local smog and go.


I had to take my Impreza to do smog because for 97 automatics came with an EGR valve but manuals didn't. Since I swapped to a manual tranny the smog tech was confused and sent me to the referee even though the car passed. At the ref they tested the car and then told me all I had to do is block off the EGR or swap to a manual engined manifold and come back for them to test and I'd be good.
Total cost is like $30 (one time fee) and $8 for the certificate and you can test as many times as needed to pass.

Can you elaborate a bit on the second part of that sentence:

but they were well hidden

How do you 'hide' fuel rails? It's not like you can move them to a different location or something.
