Big day tomorrow: the Blackfly's first e-test since cam swap & taller transmission

Its emissions test appointment is tomorrow afternoon.

EDIT: the procedure & pollutants being tested for the Ontario Drive Clean test can be found in this file:

I'm seriously hoping the car's emissions haven't somehow been made worse by the cam change and taller gearing.

There is bound to be *some* difference from the previous test (we do it every 2 years in Ontario) due to the gearing, simply because the engine is going to be running at a different RPM on the dynomometer.

Fingers crossed...
