New Product Development Resources Available Through SEMA Garage

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.

In addition to the emissions lab and installation center, the SEMA Garage offers several other services and programs to help bring products to market, including measuring sessions, custom scanning and 3D printing, a training center, and a CAD Tech Transfer program. Complementing these services, the Garage added a ’18 Jeep JL to its fleet of vehicles available for product fitment. The Jeep is a ’18 four-door JL Unlimited 4x4 with a 3.6L V6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Members interested in scheduling a private measuring session are encouraged to contact Stephanie Martinez at 909-978-6726 or email
