[DML] Re: Emissions

The PRV happens to be a very efficient little package, especially for
it's vintage. Strictly speaking though, even if your emission numbers
are within the limits for the year, if, on visual inspection, they
find you do not have a catalytic converter and the car is supposed to
have one, they can fail you. That is why there is a sticker on the
door stating such. In some states ANY modifacation, like a turbo,
needs to have a special waiver too. I do not know if anyone ever got
the waiver for any turbo set-up. Of course California is probably the
only state that would be a problem.
