Here people are saying obd2 to obd1 conversion is a federal offense. That doesn't make any sense if older cars have OBD1. I was looking into it and stumbled across that. Is it BS?

Also where can I get conversion kits?

Zionsville has conversion kits.

Technically yes, it is a federal offense. But then again, putting anything on an OBD II car that isn't OE (muffler, cats, O2 sensors) is also. Nobody gives a crap because there's no way they can enforce it. How would you proove the exaust on this car is OE and this one isn't.

If you've got inspections, or a state looking to do inspections, leave it OBD II, there's no way you'll pass with an OBD I conversion.

If you live in a state like where I live, where they don't give a shit and are more worried about kids doing drugs then people putting out an extra 2 particles per million of polution, go ahead and do it. Your car will be a beast.... even more so that it already is.

Kev pretty much summed it up. Here is a link on where to buy it.{HERE}

They are great people. They pretty much built my car and are very respected among the BMW community.

My state and county have strict testing facilites and my car passed just fine. Oh crap, that reminds me, my tags are expired.

Ouch, $1,500 is a bit pricey for a slightly-legal mod that will also cause me to lose my sharking (another $350).

I'm thinking I'll just stay with the big 2.

Oh yeah, and Jllphan passed his test because acording to their little tech book at the testing facility his car is OBD I and allowed higher emisions. Bad jllphan, naughty
