For all our non-Singaporean friends, enthusiasts here in sunny Singapore enjoy certain freedoms in regard to aftermarket modifications/enhancements, with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) the main entity governing all matters pertaining to planning, operating, and maintaining of Singapore’s land transport infrastructure and system. Among that list of responsibilities, LTA also serves as the regulatory body for vehicular modifications, upgrades and related enhancements, with exhaust systems falling under their jurisdiction.
As stipulated in regulatory documentation, LTA defines the exhaust system as:
– Consisting of the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter and muffler.
– Is used as part of a vehicle’s exhaust emission control system to ensure that the exhaust emission meets our (Singapore) environmental requirements.
– Any modification(s) to the exhaust system would therefore require LTA’s approval.
LTA evaluation requirements:
– Certification from the product manufacturer stating that the proposed aftermarket exhaust system is suitable for the make and model of the vehicle.
– Certifications or test reports from LTA/NEA recognised test laboratories to prove that the aftermarket exhaust system when fitted to the vehicle on a per make and model basis complies with prevailing exhaust emission standards.
Vehicle owners found modifying or tampering with the exhaust system may face a Court fine of up to $1,000 or 3 months’ imprisonment upon conviction in Court.
Compiled below is a list of LTA approved exhaust systems here in Singapore. To the best of our knowledge, no media has attempted to create such a comprehensive list before.
*note: this list is created as a general guideline for compliancy matters, and can not be used as a legal document as proof of legality
*note: this list is in-complete, as not all brands/manufactures have agreed to be listed, and/or have not been updated
*note: this list will be maintained to the best of our abilities, and will be updated minimally on a quarterly basis (four times a year)
Please feel free to contact us if you know of more/other brands/manufacturers that have LTA approval exhaust systems/products (or if you are a dealer/shop/brand-manager, and wish to be added to the list)
