Question Passing Inspection in New Jersey?

Passing Inspection in New Jersey?
I'm getting a 2013 Mustang GT soon and I'm already planning my mods. But my question is how far can we go these days and still pass inspection? They are now doing a LOT more to make sure everyone is running their stock maps in NJ.

I was looking at CAI's and it says the normal size intakes don't need a tune but a larger 4" will due to the newer OBDIII technology which will throw a code and potentially break the ECU if that much air is flowing.

Can I pass with an intake and a tune? I currently have a 2011 Jetta 1.8t that won't pass unless I go back to the stock programming, no way around it.

Thanks.

In jersey u can't and any trouble codes in the ecu or else u won't pass. I'm sure u can have a tune and cai as long as u don't have a trouble code. As far as emissions, Jersey is very strict on that, u can have busted taillights, and dark windows. But ur emissions and ecu have to be as clean as a whistle

The tuning shop I go to for my Jetta said they inspection stations are going as far as monitoring the secondary O2 sensor and then they do something like try to load the stock map and see that if it try's to switch back to the aftermarket map parameters right away then you failed. Something tricky like that. Anyone have experience running an after market map and getting there OBDIII mustang inspected in the last 2 years?

Also is that true that I have to run an aftermarket map with a large 4" intake.
