Default Are you going to fail smoke check?

I am very interested in vishinu products? (upipe)
But I'm hesistating because of smoke check stuffs.

I mean, there is not much hp ugrade I could do on this suby in bay area when we think about carb.
My body with 2nd eclipse looked at me funny and mocked my suby when I told him it has three cats...

How are you guys planning to upgrade hp on your suby?
I already have catback. Intakes..not worthy I think....

Since its a new car, you shouldn't have to do "smoke check stuffs" for a few years... so Mod away!!! (just keep the stock parts handy) The best place to look for upgrades would be the Factory Forced induction forum. Good luck!

It's Blue, ok?


I am keeping my stock exhaust for this pesky little problem. Bit of a PIA, but well worth the hassle.

all you have to do is stop smoking for about a month or buy some detox stuff and drink tons of water.

They sell those pills at GNC, for when you have to take a "smoke check" and don't think you'll pass.

And drink lots of cranberry juice!
