Can anyone tell me the HC ppm and CO% limits for cars in California at idle and 3000 rpm.

Thanks

Like Phil said, it depends on the year. have a look here....

Keep in mind though, anything 1974 and older is exempt from routine inspection (IIRC).

Thanks for the replies. OK here is why. I want to Fir a Roush Pahse 2 Supercharger to my 2013 5.0 Litre V8 Mustang. However, I need to get the car through the UK IVA test when I bring it back to the UK. So I thought if I were to use the Californian emission standard (being the toughest) and knowing that the UK have a CO of <= 0.2 and HC of 200 ppm then ai have some numbers to work with...

Thanks
Mark
