    NJ Emissions

    yo guys, i have a few questions about the laws for tuning in NJ

    Is it legal to have a catless dp?

    Does the AccessPort maps screw with your emmissions making them illegal?

    Are there any other things that you cant do reguarding modding with the emission laws?

    Is it illegal to have a catless DP on? Yes...

    Will the emmissions testers know when they hook up the obd2 scanner that you have a catless DP? Not aslong as you have AP or another EM!

    I know NY requires a visual inspection of the exhaust as well as an OBDII test - some states may not.


    As for NJ emissions, Micah may be able to help you a bit - I know he's running catless.

    It has been said that you can supposedly run without cats and still pass emissions in NJ. As for anything visual, I'm not sure.

    Engine Management won't mess up your emissions if you still have cats...

    ...but what do I know...I don't have to get inspected until 2010

    With the accessport I am able to run catless and pass inspection. I have a MIL eliminator plugged into the first 02 sensor, and that is the only one that the car is allowed to see thanks to a modified map created with the Street Tuner software add on. I plug in OBDII and my car passes.

    If you have no CEL, with a cat, no problem, without a cat, I still bet you pass.

    if you get an idiot at the inspection station that dont know what a cat looks like (which is most of them) and you dont have a cel and all your OBDII Readiness test show passed then you will have no problem. as far as the visual inspection for nj they use a mirror on a stick so how much can they really see.

    I pass - catless - mods in sig. Though I still do go to a friends garage, but he plugs into the OBD-II port and my car passes.

    No way in hell I'm letting them "test" my cars suspension the way they do - that's flat out abuse.
