as long as the CEL is off, and no codes are "pending" then you are fine.

Yup ...

Just don't clear codes like before you go up there ... the computer will read your OBD II and see when you cleared codes. Too soon and they will not pass you. Other than that ... you are all good.

yea you will pass no problem as long as you're not throwing CELs. A tune will eliminate the CEL. I had alot more problems passing inspection because my tint was too dark.

Headers plus a tune will give you a fairly dramatic increase in power. Just be aware, that the noise of race headers is going to really be annoying...but the power is worth it.

That's why you get Tuned SVT Headers ... they aren't as obnoxious as OBX or JBA headers.

true, the svt headers are legit. if i had to do it over, i would have gone that route. not the cheapest route, however.

thanks for all the responses. if header with a tune can pass emissions, then could the focus sport turbo with the tune do the same. if that's the case, ill hold off on the header for the turbo.
