    PA Inspections ... need help

    hey everyone, im going for my first inspection soon

    can someone help me..

    what papers do i need, what do i have to fill out, what do they usually check for?

    the only thing im worried about is that i dont have a high beam but i can just put in my old bulbs in 5 minutes if i have to. Also my DRL is disconnected, should i reconnect?

    Please help my inspection is coming up soon.

    Thanks

    You will need a valid registration card and insurance card. The safety inspection is straight forward. Don't know what county you are in, but most require some type of emissions testing (visual, sniffer, or both). You can't have any CEL's or you will fail emissions.

    Any lights on the car must function properly (high/low beams, driving lights, etc).

    Still curious though

    living in PA, bucks county PA i might add

    im about to start laying down some cash on my car, and dont want to get railed when i go for emissions for a TBE. will they be all over me if i have a stage 2 set up with the catalytic converter on it. or am i pushing my luck cuz wouldnt that only leave one cat?

    i am just not sure of the tests that they do and i dont want to put all this on and then not be able to drive it.

    thoughts?

    How would you pass the visual inspection if you are catless?
    Jack and Jill did it for the insurance

    I think it will still throw your CEL for cat deficiency, buy a mechanical fix, they are like 10 bucks, all it does is raise your O2 sensor so the sensor doesnt get directly hit by the exhaust.
