You won't find a tougher state for emissions than CA.

I'm from PA, and personally I love the south. Call me a carpetbagger (I'm not a redneck and don't fly rebel flags) but I love South Carolina, I've spent alot of time there. I think you'll like NC just fine, the people in the Carolinas are extremely welcoming and very nice.

Be warned, NC is not CA, and there are alot of "good ol' boys" there, it's really a whole different world going from PA and crossing the Mason Dixon line, I imagine its the same for you once you get across the Mississippi.

I am from near there...when you get here drop me a line and we will go racing! Greenville is a nice place, you will like it. And ECU is a good school.

I'm from wilmington, NC. And went to ECU. NC has emissions testing, but they are not super strict. As far as modded cars go. I have a friend with an RX-7 that blows 6inch flames out the ass pipe when he shifts and he has never been messed with. I used to have an Eclipse GSX with a really loud exhaust, they never said anything to me...also, north carolina is a big racing state, there are tracks in almost every county(it seems like, maybe not EVERY county,, I mena, there are 100 of them.) good luck out there. ECU Halloween is awesome. and check out wilmington, the november neap tides are great there if you surf and have a good wetsuit.
