emissions and Texas

any of you guys pass your emissions test with a header and a tune? that's the only thing that's keeping me from getting one.

cause the car is not old enough to have to get the emissions checked on it it is only a safety check. lights, tires, horn, no CEL light, gas cap. that's it. now a 2000 would have to get the emissions checked. that's when they stick it on the dyno an stick a hose in the tail pipe to see if the smog levels are to high.

now that explains why the emissions testing place i went to this year didnt stick a tester up my pipe(it sounds "weird", i know lol). i told them that it was an 01 and that was it, but the last place i went to didnt check if mine was an 01. so they went ahead and did that test.

Actually BlackOut ... this place did put something in the pipe ... I was a bit worried ... but not to much. Gotta love the tune ... ;)

I found that when I change my oil and drive it up there warmed up (Driven about 2 hours) it doesn't give off bad fumes.

some places do it just cause that is how they are told.. if you are ever worried that you might not pass find some vato to do it. slip him a little something under the table and i bet you pass every time.

Man I've been passing for a long time now. I have no tune just a MIL elminator (aka O2 cheater). I would definitely would fail a visual inspection, but I don't think anybody really does. The place I go to is a car wash/gas station and I get a free car wash with it! lol
