I made sure to drive around for a while to warm it up to be safe, because on a cold morning it smells like a gas station. After it was done, I talked to the tech and asked specifically what they did out of curiosity. In CT, because it is an AWD car made after 1996 there was no dyno test - just a visual and ODBII - dont rememebr anything about a sniffer.BPMs do have a cat and a resonator in the midpipe. So I believe you.
As for your inspection... if you were tested at 1118, that means it was probably an idle test. So you're lucky. You don't live in a state that does advanced smog testing.
