Default Emissions for a JDM swap

Ok, I did some reading on getting my STi swap to pass emissions and here is what I found:

Ottawa is doing passenger car emissions starting this month but depending on the year of manufacture for your car and your renewal date. Since my MY is less than when emissions started and I've swapped in an engine not available here I qualify for a hotrod exemption. The window of opprotunity is very very small as you can't qualify if you do your swap after your first test. You might be able to get away with telling the garage that you swapped in a different engine and hope they don't know subarus well enough.

So what is this hotrod exemption? It means that I only need to pass emissions for a 1980 vehicle. I'm waiting for the MTO to send me the actual pollutant measurements needed. With an MRT exhaust it has a large cat in it and hopefully will be pretty clean.

Being an AWD vehicle they don't put it on the rollers and instead do a 2 speed idle test. I don't understand how they're going to get all of these test stations to install dynos to test the non-AWD vehicles.

Same way the government does everything else, by spending an obscene amount of money
