California SB 112 removes cars from the full impact of AB 1824 Exhaust Noise Law - UPDATE!

California Bill To Amend 2018 Exhaust Noise Law Passes Legislature
SEMA Praises Lawmakers for Championing Critical Legislation

Thanks to the efforts of Assembly Members Tim Grayson, Tasha Boerner-Horvath, Phil Ting, Phil Chen, Senator Holly Mitchell, and enthusiasts throughout California, state lawmakers have approved SEMA-supported legislation (SB 112) that restores “fix-it” tickets for cars suspected of violating the state’s exhaust noise limit. Once signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom, SB 112 will take effect immediately.

SB 112, a budget implementation (trailer) bill, includes text drawn from SEMA-sponsored AB 390, which was authored by Assembly Members Grayson and Jim Frazier in early 2019. Under normal legislative procedure, AB 390 would not have been implemented until January 2020.

“SEMA thanks Assembly Members Grayson, Boerner-Horvath, Ting, and Chen, and Senator Mitchell for their tireless work on behalf of the over 1,700 member companies based in the Golden State,” said Daniel Ingber, SEMA’s Vice President for Legal and Government Affairs. “Thanks to their efforts, enthusiasts in California will continue to be afforded due process under the law.”

SB 112 removes cars from the impact of AB 1824, which was signed into law by then-Governor Jerry Brown in June of 2018. AB 1824 amended how California law enforcement officials issued citations for suspected exhaust noise violations by removing the ability to issue fix-it tickets, which allowed for 30-days to correct a violation. Instead, motorists received an immediate fine. The bill generated significant concern within the specialty automotive aftermarket industry and enthusiast community. Once signed into law by Gov. Newsom, SB 112 will again allow law enforcement to issue fix-it tickets.

Since 2003, exhaust systems installed on motor vehicles in California with a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating of less than 6,000 pounds, other than motorcycles, may not exceed a sound level of 95-decibels when tested under a Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). SB 112 does not change this.

GPP 10th Generation Turbo Civic Intercooler Upgrade Kits

Greddy Performance Products Upgraded Intercooler Kits for the FK8, FC1, FC3, FK7 Civic



The Greddy Performance Products Intercooler Upgrades for the 10thGen. Civics (FK8 Civic Type-R, FC1/FC3 Civic Si, and FK7 Civic Sport Hatchback) include upgraded replacement aluminum hard-piping and feature our world renown “tube and fin” intercooler cores with our carefully matched “inner-fin” structure for an ideal balance of high cooling with low pressure drop (not cheaper extruded inner tubes). This effective design is not only light-weight and efficient for cooling down air intake temperatures of turbo boost, but it’s external aerodynamic tube and fin profile helps keep vital cooling systems like the radiator feed with cool ambient air-flow, when in motion or with just the stock fan. This contributes to an overall more effective cooling solution for the a turbocharged Civic in many types of applications (road course, autocross, drag, etc...)


To keep engine power up and consistent, lap after lap, it is important to address the stock intercooler. The latest generation of Honda factory turbocharged engines make great power when cool, but use a compact OEM intercooler, which tends to easily retain heat. This “heat soak” along with the ECU’s sensitive safety protocols reduces engine power by compensating with lower boost levels and retarded timing.  During our “back to back to back” tests, the OEM factory intercooler saw loss in power of up to: -25hp/20ft/lbs for the K20 (CTR) and -20hp/12ft/lbs for the L15 (Sport/Si). While our larger more heat-soak-resistant, GPP intercooler kits, maintained consistent gains over stock of through the lower-mid to high RPM range, even after more than 3 consecutive dyno runs.

 
1.5L Civic Sport                     2.0L Civic Type-R

GPP offers two sizes of intercooler cores for each application to choose from: a medium sized core and a larger core. Both kits will offer more consistent cooling for stock turbo and moderate boost up applications, however for high boost levels with more intense tuning, or large turbo upgrades, the larger core option will often be the ideal choice. However, when lower-end boost response is a priority the medium size selection is preferred.  GPP Intercooler kits offer efficient, light-weight performance gains, with an easy bolt-on installation.
