PA emissions
 
I live in Pennsylvania and I was wondering if I would be able to use a catless down pipe or if I need a catted one

Think it depends on your county. I dont think any catted's pass emissions with the sniffer (think some really expensive ones do), but would pass visually I believe. Theyll just plug in your car and if no cels youre good. Thats what ive got through my search. I got a buddy who works at a shop and i can pass through him. So im going catless.

Well im in carbon county and my friend said that I will pass with catless but I just want to make sure

Mostly positive a cat must visually be there. I'm in Lackawanna county and that's what we do around here.

I have been wondering this as well. I just got my SPT intake and looking to get the SPT exhaust and probably Invidia catted down pipe (I think I'll need a cat). Any other thoughts on this or inside information? I'm in Philly.

or get a catless one and pay a shop to weld a "cat-looking-piece-of-metal" on it

I'm in SEPA and I have a catless dp and I have no issues getting it inspected!

I'm right out side of Philly, cars been catless for 4 years and never had a problem getting it inspected.

well i got an invidia catless downpipe so hopefully i wont have any problems :lol:

last time i went, they just plugged into my ecu. or you can simply get it passed, then put on the dp.

I went catless last summer and got inspected in October and passed with no problems. My mechanic said if the CEL is off theres no problem. I live in Lehigh county but my inspection place is in Bucks.
