    ODBII wise you should be OK. If you are running a real time map, AP reset the ECU a few days prior to the test. Visually? I think it depends on where you take it. One of the guys from the Victory meets has assured me he can get it to pass - I will try to get the name ...

    You have a PM.
    PM received...I'm actually not running a real time. I have it fully swapped. Should I be ok then? I might be able to pass visual with the Resonator looking like a cat...
    I'll have to give Zach a call. Been awhile since I've seen him even though we used to chill a bit...

    Welcome to the Keystone State. You buying up there or payin' the man?
    No sniffers is good. Hook a brotha up!!!

    Renting from the man...I wasn't saving any money at home, so may as well not save any money out of the house

    Jersey insurance is the highest...but my area isn't bad at all. I do think PA will be even better though, so I will take advantage of it if possible after I get some quotes. I am gonna keep the parent's address for awhile. At least until this registration is up. Why waste money?

    See above

    Manayunk is horrible...the hills do kick everyone's ass. But I am more or less in Roxborough in an apartment complex...so its got good parking lots with large spaces.

    As for insurance, I would keep your Jersey plates. Being so close to Philadelphia could raise your rates. You pay practically nothing for Jersey insurance b/c of your county. I pay A LOT more than you and I'm older, clean record and have a WRX not STI!!!
    Thanks Steve...I'll still be local to the area and closer to Atco, haha. I've seen so many accidents over there though with moron drivers and parking, even without snow. I know the area well cause of friends that have lived out there. I have had snow tires for this whole season...yet no snow At least I am ready, unlike last year when I was on the RE070s through the winter

    I enjoy multiquotes. I don't want to leave anyone hanging...


    Let me know how that goes. Moving to a new place means I certainly won't have enough money to buy a new catted DP...especially with Spring around the corner, I gotta save money for new summer tires

    The only time I have had an issue was with a real time map loaded. The old sensors not in a ready state error. An Accessport ECU reset, ~20 miles of driving and all was good. I probably did not need 20.

    I always tell the shop I have an aftermarket cat before getting the test. There was one year I used a garage near where I work. After telling the tech he balked at the idea of testing with a non-OEM cat. I brought up Cobb's website on their PC and showed him what was installed. He said he would have to make a few calls before testing. I left him to make the calls. He called later saying the car was ready for pick up. I never bothered to ask him about the calls.

    I have not been back to that shop since.

    I'll keep that in mind. Sounds good...I'm gonna give it a couple months first before I think about switching up plates and stuff. I just renewed the Registration in November...so I don't wanna pay more until I have to

    I'll definitely keep that one in mind as well...I definitely have NO CELs, so thats cool.

    I have an Urban Grey Metallic STI Limited. I haven't had the car around much other than on a weekend or two when I'd stay at my buddy's place. But I am getting her for good now, after having the 'rents' minivan for the past 5 days, for moving in. I've never had problems with her on the hills, other than the short first gear and rolling backwards

    I have Michelin Alpin snow tires and they are phenomenal!

    Haha, I just saw that. Nah, I'm content at my place in NJ. I'm far enough from work as it is.

    Yeah, I saw that thread yesterday. I might be down pending the weather; I despise the cold.

    Welcome to the 'Yunk/Roxborough! Which complex are you living in? Im guessing my ure other post that ure right by the acme/Kohls.. hopefully its woodmere and not summit park, they suck. I have a condo over on osborn, about 2 miles or so down henry from you.

    The hills do stuck but with my blizaks i have no problems unless its icy (like the other night) and even then when i slid i knew it was gonna happen, and i caused it to happen. Dont be suprised if u need to replace your clutch fairly regularly.. the way people drive around here you end up having to slip the clutch more you should.

    I've got one many psm buyeyes running around the area.

    Thanks for the Welcome! Haha...it does happen to be Summit Park. I happen to love it too. Why do you say they suck? Woodmere seemed nice, but Summit Park is just a bit nicer. Parking kinda blows though. Reminds me of parking in college all over again.

    But I definitely am liking it already. The clubhouse is awesome!
