The times they are a changing. It has become crucial for aftermarket companies to have their products tested and approved for emissions compliance. One company on the cutting edge of this movement is JLT Performance, which recently received an Executive Order number from the California Air Resources Board for its no-tune-required cold-air intake systems.

To gain an Executive Order from the California Air Resources Board for its no-tune-required cold-air induction systems, JLT Performance worked with the SEMA Garage and its emissions testing lab to simplify the process. SEMA tested JLT’s CAI on a new EcoBoost Mustang.

According to the Specialty Equipment Market Association, “Emissions compliance applies to almost all performance and engine products. Generally, any product that affects airflow into or out of the engine, impacts the containment or delivery of fuel or affects the functionality of an emissions control system or device requires an E.O. from CARB for that product to be legal for street use. This includes, but is not limited to, intake systems, exhaust components, tuning products, turbos and superchargers.”

Jay Tucker of JLT Performance saw the writing on the wall. He already wasn’t selling product in California so he began the process of getting JLT’s products certified for use in all 50 states.
