Hey guys just a heads up from my expirience with the unhappy emmissions booths in Washington is that the tests are more strict based on regional population. So say in Seattle the test is very strict and in Po-Dunk eastern washington emmissions aren't required. I don't know if that applies country wide, but it is something to keep in mind for you area when getting ready for your car's next prostate exam.
if it is really strict there i always a shop that will pass u for a few more bucks

SUCH IS MANGO!
my car came catless, but i figured why pollute the environment for a 1% gain? and the smell was bad, and iit was too loud for my tastes.
so i added a vibrant racing cat and i like it alot better.
its a win-win! 99% of the performance of catless, with a 90+% reduction in emissions.

Just to clarify, AWD Subarus in California do not receive a dynamometer test (all dynos are 2wd.) In which case, NOx cannot be measured. Keep in mind there is also a visual inspection for your catalytic converters and any replacement has to be CARB certified to pass!
