I apologize if this is in the wrong forum and please let me know if it is. My question is, I have a '92 GT that I am thinking of either installing a turbo kit on or possibly a Procharger. My first choice right now because of their increase in torque, etc. I have asked a couple of place about being 50 state leagal and was told no that they are sold as off road kits/purposes only. If this is true, how do people get around the legality when it comes time to register and emissions test their vehicle. I know some states don't have emissions but for the ones that do. Is there something that I am missing or is there a loophole I need to know about?
I really want to get this clearified before I purchase a kit and have it installed. Is there anything I need to look out for or anything I need to know before making the final decision? I don't want to have one installed and a state tell me that I can't drive it on the street. This would be primarily a street driven car not a track car. I am not second guessing you but don't want any issues after the fact if you know what I'm saying.
Im in FL. There is no inspection or emissions here. Theres laws, but none that govern or dictate the modifcations done to a vehicle.. except maybe exhaust. Turbochargers are fairly legal across the states, as long as you can find a system that keeps the smog components, you will have no hassle from the EPA police.
Yes. In a state that requires visual inspection, along with emissions testing, you will need to unlatch your hood, so they can take a look to make sure nothing is missing or out of place. Your smog pump will need to be intact, and operable.
