Time to start CARB testing for NC Products?

Post by JamesK383 »

Its officially official.

Mazda starts production of new MX-5 Miata in Japan (http://www.autoblog.com/2015/03/05/mazd ... n/#image-1)

does that mean CARB testing can begin? :mrgreen:

Yep, once I get current projects like our 2.5 header finished first.

Brian,

Could a 2.5 swap ever be legal in CA?

Lots of customers already have done 2.5 swap and passed smog. It's a stock motor, so it looks stock. As long as you retain all the smog equipment and stock intake, no shop will notice or care.

Hi Brian, I'm sure you get this question every day but... any progress on the CARB approval? I am mostly interested in a time-line estimate for the street header.

Thanks a lot for the great job you're doing!

I spent the last two days at the factory working on CARB NC midpipe and CARB NC catted Header...but before anybody gets excited it still could easily be another 2 years before it gets done. The reason is that we worked test fitments of the cores we think will pass, working them into our existing JIGS, that's the easy part. The process of the state doing what it does on its end could easily take another year or two.
