I seriously don't see the problem? Any modern car with modifications to improve power can remain emissions compliant. In fact you can remain fully compliant and have 5, 6, 700hp these days with cats and all. Hell I can go to Ford tomorrow and order a 670hp GT500 and still emit nothing of concern.The two-speed idle (TSI) tailpipe test directly measures hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide that exit the tailpipe. This test will be used for the diminishing population of older vehicles with a model year 1988-1997 to ensure that grossly polluting older vehicles continue to be identified and repaired.
By 2013, approximately seven per cent of vehicles in Ontario will be tested using the two-speed idle test method. Every year, there will be fewer and fewer of these vehicles on the road, and their total emissions impact will continue to decline.
Just slip the guy a $20.I have also 'heard' that a picture of the engine compartment has to match the EPA file or fail.
Any thing newer than a 1997 tha is modified is screwed.
I know GM can detect variances in when a PCM/VCM/TCM was last altered, and they can compare it to what they have on file to see if it is valid. I highly doubt that we are going to see the same here.
But, who knows? :dunno:
Regardless if it happens or not - it is going to have to be easily applied for the average shop tech to do. Green good, red bad.

But but all the average tech does is plug your car in.All the infomation goes directly to drive clean computers to pass or fail.The tech has NO say.
They are trying to prevent what you are suggesting.
Wether or not they succeed is the??????????????.
