5 Must Know Issues For Every Import Owner


Import Tuner Magazines Luke Munnell, wrote an important article on 5 important legal issues for all import and even domestic car owners. I have had a couple of cars impounded over the years. Standing on the side of the road, you won’t win the argument with the police officer.  Although honestly, I have won a few over the years.

Ever been pulled over for rolling too low or sporting too loud of an exhaust? Ever had your car impounded on suspicion of a stolen engine or missing emissions equipment, simply because there's no way for you to immediately prove the contrary? This month, our friends at SEMA's SEMA Action Network (SAN) help us address five points of vehicle legality you need to know.


  • Your exhaust is probably legal.

  • Your engine swap could be illegal.

  • How low you can go.

  • Shedding Some Light.

  • 85 is the new 116.

Head over to the Import Tuner website, or better yet, pick up the issue to check out the article.
