I was reading the emissions sticker under the front hood of my 05 SSR and I was pleasantly surprised to read that the 6.0L engine meets the SULEV (MDV (3751-5750) BIN 8 / SULEV) standards (Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle).

As the GVWR increases for a vehicle the amount of pollutants per mile allowed for the rating increases. A SULEV truck is allowed more pollutants than a car (under 3750 GWVR) to classified as a SULEV.

The 2003/2004 SSR, with a 5.3L engine, is rated as a ULEV vehicle in CA. The 2005 SSR, with a 6.0L engine, is rated as a SULEV. That means that the standard the 2005 6.0L engine complies with allows only 50 percent (approx.) of the pollutants that the 5.3L engine was allowed.
