I'm just curious if they will fail me for my aftermarket X pipe even though it has cats. I passed with it before but I have heard they are failing you now if you don't have all 6 cats like stock
that's weird, I've passed with flying colors with mac catted H pipe. How would they know that 6 cat pipe came on those cars, do they look into some sort of database while inspecting. Anyways, you can definitely argue with them and say that 6 cat pipe rotted away years ago and there were no oem replacement.
Yes they have a database with that info so they can compare. In the past I got away with "the stock stuff was damaged etc" but I have heard recently people are not passing who had no problem in the past.
My stock mid pipe is long gone and finding a stock one to pop on isn't easy either.
Well I don't have to worry just yet since the car won't be on the road for a few months but I am concerned slightly. The last person I talked to said the inspector told him he needed to have the same number of cats installed on his aftermarket pipe LOL
