Hey guys, well...this morning about 7 minutes ago I was pulled over for an "RBT" by highway patrol 2 minutes from work, and the female officer wanted to look through my engine bay, all she noticed was my BOV and told me it has to be plumb back and defected me for that, then told me to revv my engine to 4000rpm then back off, so she has issued me with a referral to the emissions department at the rta.

What I want to know is, I have a Varex exhaust and if I use the remote to make it alot quieter, can I get away with using it there or will I be further defected? I would much prefer not having to put a new exhaust on for the day. Any help or input would be appreciated. And also does anyone have a spare stock BOV with flange to suit an STi TMIC I can borrow for the day?

From what i understand the epa notice can be for noise or emissions or both. if just noise could maybe get away with turning it down. but if for emmissions i believe you will need all factory air intake and completely stock exhaust.

The Varex remote exhausts are unfortunately illegal, you'll need to change it to pass. :( That's why I keep my complete stock exhaust hanging in the garage just in case I get pulled over ;)

BOV has to be plumb back too to pass, and if you buy a decent one you'll get a good sound through the CAI when changing gears!! :)

I had a Turbosmart Supersonic on my GT, but got sick of the noise and went plumb back. I can still hear it through the CAI :thumbs:

Edit: CAI should be fine, noise, BOV and if you have a boost controller and/or gauge will need to be changed.

Thanks fellas, in that case does anyone have a spare exhaust from the cat, and BOV I can borrow for the day?? May be a long shot but I'd really appreciate it

As above Varex is illegal. Also the first defect the po po will look for is an atmo BOV or atmo Wastegate.

So you revved your engine with the Varex turned off?

I tried to sneakily turn it on but it has 3 positions and it only went to position 2 which is half shut and it is still quiet but she believed it was still too loud :(

As soon as you get an EPA notice even for one thing, the whole car has to pass. I got done a few years back for my BOV. I had to replace BOV with a stock one, remove boost gauge lines in engine bay, remove boost controller, refit stock exhaust to pass. As it was the stock exhaust only passed by 2 db :lol: :?

Why would boost guage lines be a fail?

I think they said it was a potential leak point? Also as it's not a factory fitment to comply with emission's laws.

You are not aloud to have engine lines enter the cabin, I gather you dont have a remoted boost gauge sensor either
