I do see a pretty mean looking hose going into (or out of) the exhaust mani, and some very conveluted intake piping. I think theres a turbo hiding in there.

You can SO get away with that...it looks so STOCK! A I highly doubt a cop would be able to figure it out...Unless, he says &quot;are you venting exhaust out the manifold?&quot;

even if..its not illegal to have a turbo setup.

all your car has to do is meet emission and safety standards that comply with the HTA.

yo could have a t88 running 30psi...but as long as you got yer emission papers and your car hasn't compromised any of the safety standards...yer free to peel rubber

Exactly! I'm not sure what the big deal is here, unless you're racing for pink slip :roll:

Actually, canada really sucks. Its illegal, verrrry illegal to have a turbo in a non-turbo'd car. its illegal to technically make ANY non-OEM mods to your car...rims, susp, side markers, you name it. My mom's a lawyer, and every time she comes home at night she bugs me about when shes gonna see me in court :sad: Fak em, run that turbo baby.

Heres canada's stupidity in a nutshell:

16 yrs old to smoke cigs
19 yrs old to buy cigs

18 yrs old to vote the future of your country
18 yrs old to fight (maybe even die) for that country

but you have to be 19 to celebrate with a drink

I put blue lights on my car and have to pay $110 because my ticket, which I got in the middle of fucing MAY, says im trying to be a snow-plow. HEEEELLLOOOOOOO?????

hmm...so what would be the ruling if I replaced my OEM inefficient, cold firing, copper spark plugs with performace enhancing platinum spark plugs at the same time manage to achieve better emissions results :???: I'm not lawyer, but I fail to see how the act of boosting your car in itself, provided it meets safety/crash/emissions standards, makes it illegal :???:

Well I counter the counter suit. Bill to prove. sh*t, this link doesnt work. I had a link to where the law is in the Bill, the canada motor vehicle safety act, that stated why and what defines &quot;aftermarket&quot; and why it is illegal.

Seriously, my mom BS's me about a LOT of crap, but she wasright on this one. Aftermarket parts are ILLEGAL for your car. So how do companies sell it all over the counter to us without getting shut down?? Simple, I bet half the stuff you have put on your car says &quot;not for road use&quot;...its ALL for show purposes and is NOT meant for daily driving. My headlight (PIAA) say that on the box, my foglights the same. Those clear tail lights Phi so graciously donated..ILLEGAL, for show use only.

Why would I BS about that?? Im looking for another link or literature for you guys to read on.....to be con't!!
