Hi All,

Can anyone tell me the CO2 emissions value for a 2001 SF5 (JDM) S/tb ?
I've looked but am getting no accurate data except for the UK versions.

Any ideas ?

Cheers,
PK.

Just with center cat

the rest is H&S Downpipe etc

CO 0.381% MAX is 3.5%
HC 44PPM MAX is 1200PPM

I suppose I should get a reading without ...

I take it you are asking this for road tax reasons?

Most likely it will be on engine size unless your car went through the ESVA rather than the SVA. It depends on when it was registered in the UK. If after 2006 it "might" be higher.


Bugger just read you're in Ireland. No idea of the rules there

Hi guys.

Yep, I'm in Ireland and yes, road tax is based on engine capacity up until 2008 registrations.

However, I bought this car from stevem and I need to register it for the first time in Ireland. In this case, we have the pleasure of paying VRT, which is based on CO2 emissions.
We have to pay a percentage of the 'open market selling price' (weird price determination by the govt) as tax.
The rates are here.
Chances I'll only save the 4% between 36-32% but better in my pocket than theirs.

There is a listing for a JDM SF5, 1990cc @ 214g/kmm but the SF5 Turbo has no value so it defaults to 999g/km.
On the non-JDM side, there is a listing for an SF5 S-Turbo, 1994cc @235g/km.

Have a play here and have pity on us poor souls over here :(

No-one will have tested this, so no-one can say, I'd pick the lowest and try and get away with calling it an S-turbo if I were you!
