Congrats on the pass! Just wondering if they put your car on the dyno or just did an idle test? Supposedly they are in the process of phasing in a new test whereby newer cars (OBD2 and up I think) get tested via the diagnostic port and older cars without that capability just get idle tested. No more dyno. When I tested my E30 last fall they didn't put it on the dyno, and when I looked at the sheet, it said "n/a" in all the fields for NOx. If this is gonna be the new norm it actually spells good news for guys with iffy older cars because now you can just dump a bunch of methyl hydrate in the tank before going in a not have to worry about NOx levels skyrocketing.
