Hi

A few months ago there were some postings about changes to Kit Car regulations in Ontario that are to take effect in 2013. Some people were concerned, me included, that we may have to pass an emissions test to renew our plates.. My plates are due in Febuary so I went today, Dec. 31st, and renewed for 2 years, no questions asked.

Happy New Year

It wasn't an MTO change. It was a ministry of environment issue if I remember correctly.

If you had a 69 camaro and put a 1990 engine in it you have to have the emissions from the 90 engine.

Look at your engine stamp, As far as I can tell mine looks like C4 ;)

Allan,

Unless you heard of something to the contrary, I don't think there's been a change with respect to kit car registration or kit car exemptions from Drive Clean testing. But what seems to have changed is the MOE Smog Patrol's recent clampdown (last couple years) on collector cars of all types, including Cobra kits, and their authority to order roadside emissions testing or worse. I've been staying away from most cruise-ins/car shows as this is an easy and favourite target for them.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

I think I may just go to my local garage and have an emissions test done as a pre-emptive strike. My block is pre fuel injection and I have EFI (powerjection III) on the car. I figure that iof there is any issue at the test I can change the fuel map while she is on the test rack. Then I will carry the emissions test with me. What do you think?

Up until recently, many of the builders in BC's lower mainland were subject to emissions testing. What a load of BS that is.:(
It did mean that some had to use cayt's and air pumps etc., to pass them.

Hope you Ontario guys are still OK, or that could be a real pain in the butt..

I have heard that they may stop the etest program actually.

Just gossip right now.
This would be great, as it would save the pointless bother and expense on our daily drivers. But have you heard whether they plan to change the Smog Patrol's blitzes on collector cars and car shows?
