Some states are cracking down on that hard due to tax evasion. NY is a greedy state, I can't imagine they're blind to it.

OP you should consider taking your car down to Kevin Hand @ Wicked Motorsports for a tri-state friendly retune. Kevin was a long time member of the forum, he did a dyno tune on a friends Marauder which was in the same situation as your cobra, that car was able to pass NJ and NY inspection.
Thanks. I'm going to reach out.

They'd catch me. One of the new initiatives around NYC is out of state plates. They think you're either trying to commit crimes, avoid taxes or NYC insurance requirements, etc. I'm not sure if I'd have to change my driver's license too but if I got pulled over and showed a NY license, there would be problems too.

So…if you live in NY, but have a vacation home in Montana, you couldn’t register your car in Montana? That’s pretty much how they set it up. You don’t have to change your DL either.

You're right. I did some more asking around and this can work.....with only a P.O Box I can get online. Thanks.

Think twice before registering out of state. I have a client who lives in NY with a second home in Floridia, where it was insured. The car was totaled and insurance denied overage based on fraud because the car was kept and maintained in New York.

New York DMV and law enforcement is also cracking down, spurred on I am told due to all of the fake temporary out of state plates being used.

I read this post and called a cop friend of mine and he said the same thing you’re saying. I have to make sure to update the garaged part of the insurance (but that might lead to questions and issues with them) and, if cops pull me over, especially with tints and long tubes, I’ll have another set of issues.

Also, I got my plates today

I really want to use these so I have to figure out a way to get this car to pass inspection in NY.

HOLY S#!T!!! It passed inspection!?!?! I took it to the station and they hooked it up to the machine and the machine passed it and gave me a sticker with no voodoo, hook up or any other craziness. Whatever Greg at RET did, he made it so the tune will pass inspection. Thank God!!!
