Default NY/NJ members...relocation ?'s

Hey so I moving back to siNY after almost 8yrs in Miami...

I know Saml01 is closeby to me (already setup to grab beers), and I know Paul is in NJ (would love to see those 2 crazy beasts) but not sure how far...

So anyone else up there??
How's the Miata community, even better performance community up there?

I met a bunch of local guys down here in Miami from this forum, and then grew into like 10-15 of us...very cool people
We've done crazzy tech days, drank some beers, and done a couple nice meet/cruise days. I wouldn't say we're a "club" of any sorts, just a bunch of Miata fanatics that help each other out an dchill once in a while...

Anything like that up in that area?? Mind you I moved away from NY pre-miata...so wasn't aware of any thing related...

cool, plenty of local peeps then...

my car is down at the moment, gotta hunt down a coolant leak and haven't had a chance to work on it.

I just thought of something, here in FL there's no emissions...so I run no cat, removed my charcoal canister, and was going to remove whatever else I can...
What's the chances of me being able to get this car on the road up there as-is?

the new york metro area has emissions standards pretty similar to California just without the CARB stuff.

Good luck with that, 5 years ago I could have taken you to a handful of people that would do it. Today, yea right. In the SI/Brooklyn area the only ones who did it were either A. Russians or B. Italians that know you through Russians. You being a Yankee and with the serious crackdown of emissions fraud in NY, I highly doubt you are going to find a "friend".

If you have a check engine light, you are not going to pass. Simple.

I dont have a charcoal canister but I kept all the electronic stuff for it, and I kept my EGR. I also have a CAT.

I passed emissions last month, no problem.

But... I had my car scanned with the rear o2 monitor in INC(incomplete) status. Interestingly enough, I have never seen the rear o2 monitor come in as OK on my OBD scanner. So maybe the emissions computer doesnt check it.

I'm OTB Italian man, so all good!

I guess I'll just figure it out once I'm up there... I might be leaving the car here for the winter and pick it up in March or so. I don't have any place to keep it except the street, and I really don't wanna do that... Unless I find somewhere indoors to stash it, I might have to part ways for a little while

You can always throw it in a storage unit.
