My wife took the 200 TQW IA Stage I for MD emission inspection
yesterday. After tailpipe testing at idle, the inspector said
the car failed, no reason given. He asked if the car was warm,
told her to shut down the A/C, radio, run it at 3000RPM for a
bit, then back to idle, and it passed. However, CO2 was above
the standards (So why did it pass? I don't know).
Here are the test results:
ITEM HC CO NOx CO2
STANDARD 220/PPM 1.2PCT N/A 6.0pct
RESULT 41/PPM O.23PCT N/A 16.5pct
The car runs fine, no symptoms, except that it is not as fast
as Mike Spier's IA Stage II 5000CS Quattro :-(.
But it is plenty fast :-).
Can anyone make sense of this?
