They wouldn't pass the visual inspection, because there is a non-factory turbo in there. That's all. As far as smog goes, it'll pass those as long as it's tuned (ie, not running too rich) and there is a catalytic converter somewhere on the exhaust path still.kbrunjes said:First of all let me say that I don’t even have emissions testing. So, I am not worrying about which kit to buy or anything. I am just curious, and looking for information.
I know that many, many factory turbocharged cars, even when upgraded well beyond factory specs still remain emissions legal. So why is it so hard for Hondas? Even with relatively low amounts of boost.
