That sucks really bad. Emission suckers are dumb! Like one little car will destroy in the effort of our so called ozone layer. Dumbasses. I would just get a catted x pipe for emission then come home and change it to catlless

Do you have a CAI? And can your tune be returned to stock? Just doing a little googling, "not ready" claims to mean that the system is not functioning properly. It could be due to your tune or your cats may not be filtering enough emissions. that's just what I turned up. I don't know if there's any truth to it.

I feel emissions tests punish those that actually take care of their cars. I've seen cars that should clearly fail.

A friend of mine bought a new Honda insight and it failed the emissions because the computer couldn't find any Co2.

So stock ur car came with single exhaust right, meaning one cat. So, maybe the other cat that was added doesn't have O2 sensors, not hooked up, or not hooked up correctly?

Definitely yea! Bring back your car to a stock tune for a while for a week then do the smog again and you'll pass it.. After the smog tune your car again! That's what I do and from my experience..

The stock six with the single exhaust still has two cats and two precats before the y pipe.

Oh ok. Then definately revert to stock tune and run for a week.
Fortunately I live in a zone in washinton state that doesn't require emissions testing. Heh the only times I ever failed was when I lived in a zone that required it and I just got a cougar that had not been ran in over a year so it had bad gas, then in hawaii when I had an old jag that failed hawaiis strict safety inspection.

I'm sorry bro

---------- Post added at 11:19 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:12 AM ----------

Where I live they don't care. And my car can breathe! Actually breathe. I mean think about it, these environmental freaks take it too damn far! Alright. Those converters do more harm that good. Think about it. Your car is just a spec, A damn volcano releases tons of harmful vapors to our atmosphere, so what those environmental freaks are going to find out how to stop a volcano eruption? I know I'm out of the box right now but that crap pisses me off

Yup, here in good old Corpus Christi, TX they don't test for emissions only safety.

Yeah, I just got a 99 with a 3.8 and I was entertaining the thought of cramming a 351 in it until I heard about how it's pretty well impossible to pass inspection. It is dumb, but probably saves me and wallet a lot of headache
