I have a 2010 Genesis 2.0 A/T, and I'm looking to upgrade the turbo. Since I live in NC I have to pass emission testing, but I'd like to replace my o2 housing. I've been told that I won't pass as soon as I do so. I'm wondering if anyone else has to deal with that issue and if there's a way around it.

What kind of emissions testing do they perform in your area? Because as long as its just a sniffer test and no visual inspection, you may be able to pass with a tune designated to do so. Or if theres no way around it...you may just want to make good friends with one of the local inspectors lol

I've been told a few different things about it. Some people are saying that I can't change the o2 housing and pass. Others have told me I can put a spacer for my o2 sensors and not throw a code

I'd rather do it myself

If they plug it into the OBDII port and you have no cat it will show incomplete and you will fail.

I figured that, but there are a lot of people in my area with an upgraded turbo, and they still daily theirs. So I'm not sure if they just kept the stock housing and got a custom tune or what

defoulers won't work... I've tried YEARS ago. With how they programmed the ECU it's sensitive.

There is no way around it, here in NJ emissions test is every 2 years, with the stock manifold and the 16G all i had to do was swap the o2 howsing back to the stock one and run the stock Ecu for a few days, now with the EVO kit is a bit more complicated, i'll have to fabricate a cated o2 housing if i want to pass emissions since the stock one doesn't work on this turbo.

Nope, what i do is put all the stock emissions stuff back on and while all the performance stuff is out I inspect everything, rebuild the turbo, clean the injectors...it's every 2 years it's perfect, I did kept all the factory stuff and an extra ECU.
