Manufacturers of air intakes, superchargers, exhaust systems and other parts for diesel and late-model gasoline vehicles can now test for emissions compliance at the SEMA Garage following a recent renovation that included the addition of particulate matter measuring equipment. The remodel doubled the size of the installation center and increased the floor space of the emissions lab, allowing for more SEMA members to utilize the resources simultaneously.
Porsche 911 Turbo: The car retains turbocharged engines under the rear trunk, powering either the “regular” Turbo or the Turbo S.
’19 Fiat 500X: Expect new bumpers and lamp units front and rear, and a new eight-speed automatic may replace the troublesome nine-speed.
Kia Sorento Diesel Mule: The Sorento should be powered by the same 2.2L turbodiesel four-cylinder found in the recently debuted Hyundai Santa Fe.
