I took the Cobra for emission on Saturday and the car failed. I had 11 System Monitors show up "Not Supported" and the MIL Status is "Off". I am assuming that something has been turned off in the tune to allow me to run long tubes without triggering anything.

I am pretty sure this issue can be corrected with a retune or adjustment to the original tune. I have never had a car with long tubes, just O/R midpipes. I have never had an issue with passing on O/R midpipes so I would think that the long tubes would not be any different.

Anybody have any experience with this?

I bought the car with a tune already on it from a guy in Cadillac Michigan. I am pretty sure they do not deal with emissions out there. Looks like I will be calling Tim @ Mr. Norms.

The kid I went to was a major idiot. When I pulled up, the first thing he asked me was if a girl responds to his text does that mean she is still interested in him. No shitting. I was stunned for a bit and then I fed him a line of bullshit to try and avoid the conversation. Then he started mumbling a bunch, I nodded my head, and then he put me in the booth. After that he grabbed me, kept rambling on about how this chick went on a date with him once, and then she would talk to him, but not go out with him again. I closed my door started my car, he handed me my paperwork, and told me I failed. I was like WTF???

Here's a picture of my "test" from last week. 9 out of the 11 show up as "Not supported". I too left there with everyone coughing and the smell of a catless car in a building running and I passed.

If he just plugged into the OBD, it's a tune issue that your tuner should have fixed. If he used a tailpipe sniffer, that's harder to beat.
If we had sniffer I would have been fooked. The exhaust stops right off the muffler under the rear seat.

Has the PCM been reset recently? Battery changed or died?


I went with nothing working and have passed two years in a row. The exhaust fumes were strong as hell too:rofl:

I've had good luck at the Elk Grove Village facility. Shortly after buying my '01 cobra, i was called into emissions. Mind you i just got done doing Kooks long tubes and O/R X. The CEL light never came on after the install, but had a tune when i purchased it without a hand held so was sure everything was turned off. Sure enough, went to the test and every monitor was not supported, which was no surprise. What they did next though was put the car on the sniffer, and i was almost ready to tell him dont bother but just stayed quiet. Figuring i was going to fail, he told me to get in and he would hand me the results. To my surprise the car passed lol, reading on HC count was just under their test threshold. Guess the car was running really good for the tune it had.
