I’m in the process or starting my build and wanted to know if anyone had any issues with passing emissions after swapping out intake down pipe and exhaust and tuning the engine? I have a long list of things I would like to start doing but wanted to make sure I wouldn’t have problems when I needed to get it inspected since it is also my daily driver. Thanks in advance

Should be fine. Get a catted DP and you might need an o2 spacer. What tune are you going with?

I think Ive narrowed it down to the Unitronic Stage 1+. I was planning on doing the tune first then short throw shifter, lowering springs, wheel spacers and then DP. The list goes on but thats the start of the build.

Stg1+ will be a great improvement over stock. Once you go dp and stg 2 you’ll likely need to invest in a clutch. Good starting list, should make the driving experience much better.

Well, if you lived around DFW I may or may not know a guy that will inspect you without ever seeing the car. BUT...since you don't, I don't have any idea what I'm talking about

For $50 every 2 months I can just ride around with a temp tag all year long down here. I dont know if its like that up there but it seems like 1 out of every 5 cars here is always on temp tags. Not that I would consider driving around all incognito and $h!t without any registration, inspection or record of my vehicle in the system......;).

I'm not sure on the temp tag but I do see a lot of them. Most of the time shady lookin rides imo.
Its a $100 for a solid inspection that last for a year
