CAI legal in NY?

Hello all,

I'm taking my car for inspection soon and I wondered if any New Yorkers could tell me if, from personal experience, having a CAI installed will fail inspection. If it will i guess I'll have to put the stock airbox on for a day.

Thanks!

I've never heard of a CAI causing a failed inspection. I'm not from NY, so I don't know for sure, but that would be really weird if it did.

Coming soon...

actually in terms of illegal, i thought CAI were considered illegal, but something that was always omitted from inspections

k thanks fellas I'll rest easier now I'm taking it in Wednesday and I don't "know the guy" so just wanted to make sure before i waste my $21 for state inspection!
Also having the brake/clutch fluid changed, the rad flushed, and an alignment performed. I'd do the fluids myself but have nowhere to do it. The guy said about $200 for everything which doesn't seem all that bad.

i have an FIPK kit on a truck of mine and they didn't mention a word about it. i heard that they (CAI) were illegal in NY too, but that is only if it causes a fault in the omissions computer. NY inspections are totally gay now with the obdII scan and the kicker is that only 2 or 3 of the five (i think) computers have to be online for it to pass inspection. my car has a small emissions leak and all i have to do to pass the test is to disconnect my battery or clear the computers and then drive it for 100 miles and i have just passed the obdII scan test with 3 of the 5 computers up and running. then after i pass 100 more mile role and the small evap leak comes back up. good old new york for another gay law.
