Emissions O/R Midpipe Question

There's tons of inspection shops around where I live. I know a couple of them don't do visual or use a sniffer and I have a o/r hpipe. I'm using the handheld SCT tuner with BAMA tunes. So my question is, when they hook the computer up, will it detect the tune that shuts off my CEL and not pass it?

CrookedHalos,

The information you were given is correct. Since the O2 sensors are shut off when they look into the system it will say NOT READY.

The easiest way may be to purchase a set of MIL eliminators, you can most likely get through inspection with these. They will trick your computer into thinking you have cats without turning off the actual sensors. Or you could just throw your stock mid pipe back on there & go through inspection.

Let me know if we can be of any assistance & good luck!

- Dan

Hell I've pondered about just resetting the codes and rushing it through. My CEL takes awhile to turn on I've noticed. I bet the local mustang crew gots some hook ups. I might talk to them. Thank you guys for answering my question though. I didn't want to go in like an idiot with just the tune and expect it to pass lol.

If you just reset and then try and go you may not pass either. When they hook to the obd2 it needs to read ready. If it doesn't then they know you just reset and will probably fail you as well. I think it takes either 50 to 100 miles to read ready again. Just something else to think about.
