Modded turbo wagon failed emissions--any suggestions?
Posted 02 March 2006 - 01:21 AM
My readings were around 300 ppm for hydrocarbons, both tests, and 6% CO during the cruise test. Idle is whatever the car idles at, 1100RPM limit; cruise is around 2500 RPM (close as the inspector can manage). The limits are 220ppm HC and 1.20% CO...I can either pay a $40 fine every 2 years and reregister the car...or get a shop to put $660 into it and qualify for a waiver...or figure out some way to get the darned thing to pass.

The two-speed idle test requires the inspector to obtain an average reading from exhaust gases over 2.5 minutes of run time--once at idle, not to exceed 1100 RPM, and once in "cruise" mode at or near 2500RPM.
My readings were:
HC result 295 parts per million
HC limit 220 ppm
CO result: 6.1%
CO limit: 1.20%
RPM Limit: 1100
HC results 264 ppm
HC limit 220 ppm
CO result: .8%
CO Limit: 1.20%
As the title suggests the car has a straight 2.5" exhaust on it and a couple of other modifications that will not affect emissions performace. It's had a recent tuneup and the block was built (I was told with emissions in mind) less than 7K ago.
Also as the title suggests, it's a standard Subaru turbo wagon...this is the old gen forum, chances are it's an EA82.
Finally, what I need to do (I thought this was also pretty clear) is get through a state mandated emissions test, the cheaper the better. If I can't, oh well, I'll just pay the fine and get plates anyway.
