    I dont think my ride is gonna pass emissions. I have MIL Eliminators and yes my CEL stays on constantly. Is it possible to pass emissions like this? If i fail i plan on getting a catted X-Pipe.

    you have no cats? it most likely won't pass the sniffer without them.

    I don't know how your state is but here in NC when you go in for inspection, your car is hooked up to a computer that is linked directly with Raleigh. The computer determines weather you pass or not, the guy at the shop has nothing to do with the OBD II test. You info goes in with the vin number. The only thing you can wet his palm for is the safety inspection. This is why I went completely legal with my Cobra, I did not want any probs come inspection time.

    Little off topic but along the same! Does anyone know if the rumor of the SOS pads up the tail pipe really fools the "sniffer"? Thanks Droptop for the wordage!

    NJ has one of the tuffest inspections in the us (cept fer californy) I have a o/r prochamber and flew right threw. You will fail if you have a light on though. If your tune is good the sniffer wont fail ya. You actually are burning the fuel more efficient then most stock cars if you have a good tune. Even without the cats. But you gotta do somthin with that light. MIL's may be bad or maybe like 19mustang95 said maybe its somthing else.

    That's right, the visual test could be failed if the inspector wants to be a complete ASS :aresehole:.........I took it to the shop that does all our work truck maintainace, so they knew me and passed it with no questions asked. I went with legal tint and the catted x pipe so I would be guarantee to pass.
