I need to pass by the end of next month so I need to get this figured out as soon as possible. My mechanic has no problem passing me once my car goes through its cycle and is ready for inspection but then it throws a check engine light, so will a tune get rid of this or what?
Running no cats and attempting to pass emissions can definitely get tricky. We can turn your O2 sensors off within the tune, but then your system is going to show up "not ready". The MIL eliminators are going to be your best bet to pass emissions. Are you getting the code on the same bank? Have you attempted to swap the MIL eliminators from side to side?
If the Code is the same bank on two sets of MIL eliminators, chances are it may be a defective o2 sensor or something along these lines. A good way to check if the MIL eliminators are defective is to switch them. If the code follows to the other bank, then the MIL eliminator is defective. I would recommend checking the o2 sensors, check for exhaust leaks and swap the MIL's! This should help you troubleshoot. Once these three steps are completed we can keep looking into this with you!
I hope this helps! You can also give the Bama team a call if that would be easier for you. They can be reached at the contact information in my signature!
