    MD emissions

    For all Maryland residents who are worried about emissions and don't know whether to go catted or catless; a friend of mine just passed emissions with no cats. He has a basic stainless ebay dp with the SPT catback and had no problems at the VIP station. The fact that his car looks basically stock (just a little lower due to H-Techs) probably helped.

    MD emission is very easy as long as you have a OBDII compliant ecu. They only do OBDII scan and gas cap check.

    Technically, they are supposed to run a mirror under the car to check for cats too, but since the 'tards that work at those stations are too stupid to realize that not all cars will throw an immediate SES light, they rely on the OBD2 codes to "tell" them if a car is cat-compliant.

    It's all a money-grubbing scheme, really. You can get out of emissions compliance if you know the right avenues and/or the right people.
