For everyone here with a Single Setup, I might be in that category fairly soon. Since I don't have a daily driver anymore Im gonna have to get this thing registered asap so I can get to work and so on. I was wondering how you guys got through this. Any help would be appreciated.

Register the car somewhere with no emissions!

Ya Casa Grande would work, just need a address (Ive heard PO boxes are harder to use unless you have bills from that po) and you should be good to go.

It depends on the year. 95 and older just do the roller test, 96 and newer plug into the diagnostic port and are harder to get around if your electronics are not stock. If it is a 95 and older and is tuned for maximum performance you may want to turn the fuel pressure down a little before the test, operational catalytic converter is a must and I've been told that aftermarket cams may cause problems. My car (95) VPC, 850cc, T78, stock cams just barely passed (one more part per million and it would have failed), although I will say I forgot to turn down the fuel pressure. If all else fails you'll have to register it in a town in which emmisions is not required (AKA Casa Grande) as Jerry said. Steve

Will a single turbo pass the visual inspection?

In my case, yes, and my single was polished so it really stood out. I don't believe my car had an egr valve either, but there are so many hoses, wires and lines running all over the place that the inspector would probably have to be a Supra expert to know if you were missing anything. I haven't heard of anyone in Tucson having a problem with a single, have you Jerry? Steve

They will be so googlie eyed that they won't realize that it's single or twin. They're going to be so happy that you made their day. Last time I was in they had an arguement over who was going to sit in the car.

Looks like the MVD has changed their rules...used to be that you only had to pass emissions if you were in Maricopa County. They have now created an "Area A" (click here for map) that requires the testing. They also state that you must provide a utility bill for a physical address, which would mean a PO Box would not be sufficient. However...they also mention that "the Motor Vehicle Division will automatically exempt most vehicles by the residence zip code"...so they may not even pay attention to whether or not it is a PO Box as long as part of that zip code is not in Area A? One thing to remember (that really doesn't matter) is that they only consider the exemption valid if you do not commute to a place of employment within Area A. I'm guessing that once you get your tags there's no way for them to know otherwise, but if anyone on here is a cop they could probably answer that for ya.

Casa Grande is the closest area that appears to not be in Area A...but my guess is that they would ask much fewer questions if you were to have a PO Box in some tiny town up north such as Heber or Pinetop or something along those lines. In many of those small towns no one has home mail deliver, they all use PO boxes. This would eliminate any suspicion of using a PO box I'm guessing. Besides...those roads are a fun drive anyways :)
