The SEMA Garage is available to help auto parts manufacturers develop products from start to finish. For many manufacturers, the process includes obtaining emissions certification. Emissions certification is required for almost all performance and engine-related products, and the SEMA Garage is available to make the process as easy and affordable as possible.

Manufacturers of air intakes, superchargers, exhaust systems and diesel auto parts can now test for emissions compliance at the SEMA Garage following a recent renovation that included the addition of particulate matter (PM) measuring equipment. The remodel allows for more SEMA members to simultaneously test-fit prototypes, install components and perform emissions tests.

Diesel emissions testing is particularly useful for manufacturers that create products that affect engine performance, air flow or fuel delivery, because the parts must comply with emissions standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

The renovation also included enhancements to the installation center and emissions lab, resulting in more space to better serve SEMA-member companies that depend on these services.

In addition to the emissions lab and installation center, the SEMA Garage offers member companies several other services and programs to help bring their products to market, including measuring sessions, custom scanning and 3D printing, a training center, and a CAD tech transfer program.
