This is one thing that i have little problem with lol. Being from Arkansas, and having no vehicle checking its pretty easy to run whatever the hell you have... Of course i have seen some not so road worthy vehicles driving down the road, not to mention some being really bad for the environment. But being able to modify your daily to your hearts content is very nice .

Alabama is not to much different in this aspect as there are no state required emissions test. And as long as they dont suspect it as being a custom built car, which pretty much depends on the people at the DMV he is going to. If they deem it as such a custom vehicle, he would then need to be able to show proof of the bill of sales for any major part of the vehicle. Including but not limited to Engine, transmission, rearend, etc. etc.... ..


But since most people in those jobs dont care I SERIOUSLY doubt that would happen.

Now one thing to take into consideration is that although there are several laws that prohibit serous modification to street driven vehicles, there are just as many cracks in the seam that one can use to bypass them.. Now im not saying i agree with some or maybe the majority of them, I understand that really only a select few go about it in this way...


That being said... I would probable never live in Cali ROFL

It's looking great. I was just browsing over on TheTurboForums and found your post. Can't wait to see it finished.

Btw, if alabama is similar to tennessee, you shouldn't have to get your work deemed "safe" since you most likely have the title to your focus. They don't even check vins up here. I love it. Same goes for insurance, don't tell them its modified. What they don't know wont hurt or help them charge you more.

Btw, I just snagged up a 5.3 for 150. Not sure if Imma put it in my s10 or rx7 to replace the fresh 383.

well the guy above you is kyle, he has a the same set up as mine in a sanoma. i vote rx7 b/c they are so light and low. a s-10 is awesome but really only good in a straight line compared to the rx7... but i doubt the 5.3 will make as much power as your stroker with out a turbo... its only a 326

You should just MAPS tune it, and leave the filter off. Looks nice.
