    Do they collect gases or use a CEL reader? As long as the O2 senors are all connected, you should be fine.

    VA collects gases. If the o2 sensors are all that is necessary, are cats necessary at all?

    Well, if they did the CEL reader and you didn't have the O2 sensors in, the car would throw a CEL and you'd fail emissions. But now that you said they collect gases, you'd have to revert back to stock for the emissions test.

    well i think should keep the o2 sensors in just b/c they provide feedback to the ecu. Do aftermarket exhausts even contain o2 sensor ports? now i am thinking about going with a turbo xs bc they have a catted DP. in summary va sucks
