So where we live our cars need to pass an emissions test to ensure that all of the emissions control devices are working properly. If you don't pass you can't buy insurance. For the past 7 years while this requirement has been in place hot rodders have learned how to "de-tune" their hopped up cars to get them to pass. Our newly acquired GN is in such absolutely fantastic shape I decided to run the gauntlet and see what sort of numbers were produced. Naturally I was shocked when the car produced the worst fail I've ever had. Even my 81 Camaro pushing 425hp got better readings... I assume it had something to do with the taste of raw fuel coming out the back of the car as I waited inline to be tested... Checkout the readings report:

I bet those 36lb injectors had alot to do with it.. Cost me a $24 test fee, and I will have to re-permit the car to go spend another $24 for a re-test next monday. Almost $200 just to get it so I can insure it! Egads..

I used to pass with 50lb injectors no problem..its not the injectors.
Does the car have a catyalic convertor?

If your smellling raw fuel in the exhaust you will never pass emissions.
Do you have the correct chip for 36lb injectors?

You need a scan tool for these cars if you don't have one get one.
They are an absolute must have item..
