Emissions testing around Atlanta, GA

Postby kilt88 » Fri May 30, 2014 3:48 am

Who can talk with me from experience around emissions testing in the Atlanta north and northeast suburbs?

I'm moving there, and need to make sure I understand the Georgia process. I'm redoing my st185 now, and should probably plan some of these things.


Thanks,
Josh

Depends on the county you live in. Some county's don't need emissions.

I will likely be in Gwinnett. I am interested in the finer points of the inspection, such as which emission components they are looking for. Do they allow vehicles built for e85? Do they allow engine swaps? Do they put all wheel drive cars on a dyno?

Honestly I'm not too sure. I live in the country so we font have to have emissions. I know it's not as crazy as Comifornia though. I'm pretty sure you can have engine swaps, e85 etc. Not sure about the dyno but I doubt it. It's crazy hard to find anyone with a awd dyno for tuning so I doubt a emissions place would have it.

I'm in Bartow county and fortunately we have no emissions. I do have a few friends with built cars in Gwinnett, so I'll ask around over the weekend and reply back.

A bit off topic.. How do you like the SMC on your car? I'm looking at picking up a SM2 from one of the local guys for my '88.

Sweet -- thank you. I'd love to talk with them.

The SMC is absolutely amazing -- it's like everyone says -- it transforms your car. If I had to buy new, though, I'd go with Vipec or a new Polish standalone maker, whose name eludes me at the moment. But at the right price, the SM2 is sweet.

I live in Gwinnett. You have to have a catalytic converter and they will inspect for that. They won't look for anything under the hood. Usually they 2 wheel dyno NON-obd2 cars but they can't on the alltrac so they just do an idle test and a 2500 rpm test. Looking for high Nox and CO. I have a 3 inch exhaust and a free flow cat and I always pass. Oh and they'll test the gas cap. Easy peasy.

Same procedure for Cobb County FYI.

Ha ha ha been good! Project has been at a virtual standstill. Passion is still there, just no time with academic and family obligation. Soon though, I will have more of an opportunity to work on it. You?

I'm Ok. Here and there, I work on the toys when I have time. 2 out of 3 are almost done. Gone are the days of wanting a crazy high hp All-Trac ( tired of garage queens). It's more fun to have reliable and driving cars (3rd and 4th gen swaps :wink: ). I'm not getting any younger. I want to enjoy the toys a bit more.
