IIRC, people that are really concerned in Cali just do WRX swaps and keep the stock WRX ECU. Newer stock = better in the emissions' tester minds.

Around here? We get emissions 4 years after the car is bought new, and every 2 thereafter. Mine is coming up to 4 years next March and more then likely, it will be returned to stock or sold by then.

Here in MD they only do an OBD II check on newer cars. No exhaust test or anything, they do check to see that you have a cat however. I could never get my stock ECM to not throw codes so i kept failing. I just had to spend $450 on emissions related parts and you get a waiver. I bought some new RC 550 injectors and that qualified me.

FYI, Puckaveli is working something for the Ohio folks... thing is the GC/GM RS was such a low production car it qualifies for state collectors car tags... emissions free . He is waiting on formal info from SOA but the car fits the criteria in the ODOT rules. Something for you all to look into.

Well, I just E-checked my car(some Ohio counties have to do that). Granted, I'm basically stock, but my results barely registered for them. There was no visual inspection, and from watching them inspect other cars(with obviously aftermarket exhausts) I'd guess they are only concerned with ostentatious tips and really loud vehicles.

I'd guess a properly tuned RS-T would pass in Ohio, for E-Check. If you could set up a stock looking exhaust(with something appearing to be a cat, in case they look) just for testing purposes, you'd probably be OK. My test consisted of about 40 seconds of testing at about 3500-4000rpm. That's it. Nothing else.

Although, a waiver would be nice...provided my registration costs didn't go through the roof for this.

We have the OBDII test in Illinois.
Your car MUST have a working OBDII in order to pass.
Your car MUST have all OBDII test completed.
Your car MUST pass all OBDII tests.

This will be checked by a OBDII scanner.

If the OBDII shows non-emissions realated warnings, then you may try to pass the sniffer test.

----

I'm going to be trying to pass the OBDII test with the T still attached to the RS-T.

By the end of the month dag nab it!

Some counties in Ohio don't have to do E-check fortunately. Mine is registered in Champaign county and as of right now there is no requirement for it. I will deffinately keep an eye on that collector car thing though in case that ever changes.

The collectors plate would run around $80 a year.

If SOA comes through, which seems very likely, the will send me a letter stating my car is a limited production vehicle, but the letter will have to have my VIN, year, make , model, etc so if it works this will have to be done by the individual.

That works. Like I said I don't have to worry bout it for now, it's just nice to know the basics in case I ever have to do that sort of thing. Always good to know that there is a precedent just in case, ya know?

Is this collectors car thing limited to Ohio, or is this a nationwide thing? Heck, $80 a year is better than $35 for the inspection and $50 to pretend he didn't see what he thought he saw in the engine bay.

Default Oregon Emissions

In Oregon there are so called regions of testing. If you live iun the general portland metro area and other more heavily popultaed cities you are needed to take an emisisons test. in some other areas you are not. Best way I can think of and the way I did it was find a friend that lives in one of the areas that dont require testing and have your address changed for a little bit and say you live in that area. All you need to do is bring proof of insurance, license card and license plate number. $30.0 and you have yourself some new emissions tags good for 2 years I Think not to much work for tags eh? Or you can sell it to your freind for a week adn have him register it, as long as he lives in the certain areas then have him "sell it " back to you, I mean no money exchange just pass the title over and backl hehehe evil, I know, but it works and "no, I never said it was possible to do this because my car still needs tags..." tehe

Just curious about what your insurance has to say about owning a collectible car.

Don't tell em.

As for if the collector car thing is for Ohio only, best advice I have is to check your local DOT or DMV websites and review the code for special tags. Imagine if the cali folks could get out of CARB testing
