Hey, I want to take off my airpump and replace it with a pulley kit, but will it pass aircare is what im wondering. Do I need to have it on when I go to do the emission test? If so, how hard is it to remove the pulley kit again, and then install it, and then putting it back on after the test?
You can just do what I do. Lower the car, drive up to the emmissions place, and tell them your car is too low to put on the rollers. They gave me a two year "pass", and assured me that when the two years are up, they'll go ahead and give me another one. No more emissions headaches.
I also have another question. if upgrading the intake, downpipe, catback, would I need a boost controller to keep it at 10psi or will it stay stock boost?
A boost controller cannot lower boost past what the wastegate will naturally achieve. Therefore with those modifications, you will need to port the wastegate. A boost controller will only be able to raise the boost.
