Nc Folks

Okay my mbrp exhaust gets rid of my cat. Which in the state of NC you need to have emissions test done. So my question to you guys without buying a tuner saving money up now for one. How can i get it so my car reads the rear 02 sensor is working properly.

Yep, jmk is referring to this:

You can assemble one for just a few bucks until you can save the cash for a tuner...

How does your setup deletes the cat? Did you install a race header? IMO, installing a flex-back MBRP exhaust will not delete the cat. But, since yours is an 07, I am not 100% sure. You can add a sparkplug fouler to the O2 sensor to trick the sensor.
