There are only a few places out here in Mass, and the one I really want to do the work (Chris Cerce Customs) doesn't seem to want to do the work.

      If there was a new Mark with 2 doors and RWD i'd likely buy one. I have absolutely no passion for ANY new car out there right now. At least not any in my price range, which a flagship lincoln is.

      Only one place I know to do it, and up the power level.

      As far as passing insp, I would be on the phone with local clubs and hot rod shops to find the worm hole.

        I guess no one drives anything "performance" in MASS...California has the stricktest emission laws in the country yet noise is not an issue...I hear Challengers and Mustangs from miles away with their obnoxious exhaust yet they pass emissions.
        INSPECTIONS are senseless unless RUST poses a safety concern, IMHO

        Just go get a nice stock marauder.

          I have never heard of decibel inspections but obviously you can't run open headers or something like that. (Not saying that's what you have). There are plenty good low restrictive mufflers that meet code and gotta have the cats( whether we like them or not). Second maybe get specialty tags.

            I disagree that inspections are senseless. Most states now only do emissions though. There are so many beater cars on the road that jeopardize us all.

              We have 0 inspections in illinois. If we did i think 0 of my cars would pass
              Mark: highly illegal tint, no cats
              Crown vic: cop stuff still on there
              Truck: no cats (although i dont think it came with any), held together with hope

                I live in Alabama and we have no inspections. You see a lot of junk on the road.

                  I'm selling. I'm out. Time to move on. Putting feelers out there. Send PM if interested. I will only be posting for sale ads as they get pushed out the garage. Vert first and hopefully soon as I have another vert in the works. Vert has air hiccups. Need occasional love tap if compressor (nos) won't kick on.

                                Went with a Benz S class. Thinking of the vanity plate NOMRK9. Mass requirements are limited.
