probably an even bigger fine for bribing the guy :)

Learn to play really really dumb during emissions tests.

and an O2 simulator that works is the best way to pass emissions when the time comes. this way if you decide to eliminate your EGR when you do the headers, you'll only have one code to worry about

Just deleting the codes in the computer works well if you have a 99 and older car.

x2.
last time i took my GTP in for emissions the guy who ran my car through (650 idle with an XP cam and 3 inch catback) wanted to know what was done to it. according to him, his 3.8 thunderbird has the same engine. i :bowrofl:ed, took my pass sheet and drove away.

My friend just took his 02 Wrx in and it passed just fine. It apparently failed by the previous owner when it was stock. Removing the cats and going stage 2 let it pass just fine:bigthumb:

oh and catless subarus reek really bad. I don't know how you can't notice it doesn't have cats

Um, Cats, EGR, Evap... what are these things.....
catalitic converter, exhaust gas recirculaion and im iffy on Evap
That was a joke.....

Only emissions systems in use on my car:

PCV (positive crankcase ventilation)
and
HO2 (Heated Oxygen Sensor) (but this is required for fuel control)

And I have a few exhaust pieces to limit Noise Pollution :dunno:

i sure hope they never get emmissions down in my area...


DD doesnt simply deleting the codes with a tuner solve the issue, and doesnt require an o2 sim? it shouldnt cause a 'not ready' will it?

I thought that deleting all the codes worked, but Al (james's and my friend- 04 GP) cannot get his car to pass. and he has a PT and all that jazz.

I just wiped out all the codes and took my cammed car in there and drove away with a pass. frankly I was surprised. no emissions junk on it.
