It depends on the state and how they test , some just look for a CEL and some do the full scan , all states will be going to the full scan

TX plugs it in, as far as I know as long as the CEL is off it passes so your probably right on that one. I get the same read out the OP gets and everything says ready on mine even though the rear O2 is turned off. Same with the EGR and it's deleted completely. Gotta love TX and it's half ass emissions. Next county over doesn't even do them, or plug it into the OBD. If the lights and brakes work and the tires hold air it rolls with a sticker lol.

in OR they plug it in, and also check for CEL if its on they automatically dont pass you, and im pretty sure most of the states will start having more rules on that. because OR didnt care about catalyst, but now they do. :/

I can plug in my fairly new mini with NO major mods and some thing come up unsupported.... this doesnt mean that it isnt functioning properly, all it means is the cars ECU doesnt support the test that the diagnostic is trying to run.

alright sleepyboy and 1turbofocus, i disconnected the wiring for the second o2 sensor, and i drove around 14 miles so far, and the CEL did not turn on yet. I will see tomorrow after driving some more if it will turn on and let you know.
