aircare is to stay for another decade

Heard it over the radio.... saying they won't be getting rid of it for at least another decade and adding 2 more exams on top of it.

I don't exactly recall what those 2 exams were but one of them was about fuel vapour tank or w/e it was

I knew they would not get rid of it,it would not make sense for the government to get rid of a cash cow like aircare.

the article only mentions a review board of some sort that thinks that Aircare should stay. There is still some hope!

no pt getting rid of something while

1st, 60 bucks for a simple couple minutes of dangerously hard work on checking with obd scanner
2nd, it is environmentally friendly guys!
3rd, whoever swap stock exhaust for aircare will change back to catless+header+watever right after... supports local businese guys!
4th, the government doesn't want shit from the workers union for cutting jobs and shit
5th, that keeps people from getting inferior cat materials, supports cat or metal business guys!

you are shitting me fuel vapour tanks...... many old cars didn't come with one. I'm assuming that you are talking about the carbon canister that absorbs fuel vapour and then releases it into the engine when the car is started....

our cars are OBDII
they just plug your car in and make sure there are no CELs
if you have a defouler or have Kpro, this wont be a problem

the dumb ass also used a mirror to look under my car.....
but he still passed me
