Mods no sure where to post this so feel free to move
So I take my 07 for inspection today. In NJ, the only thing they really test for these days is the check engine light and the emissions. My car is stage 2+ with a full Perrin 3" Turboback (HF catted DP). I pull my car in, get the usual give me your DL, Insurance, etc.... Ok, get out of the car and walk down to the end. No sooner do I walk down to the end do I see the hood go up and Ying Yang starts staring at the engine bay with his flashlight. 5 Minutes go by, the guy is using the mirror under the car, scratching his head. Slowly, 1 by 1 there are now 4 guys leaning over the car. I can't really here but the only thing I can think of is they're looking for catalytic converter on the DP. So I walk back down and ask them "Are you looking for the catalytic converter?". Ying Yang 1,2 & 3 say there isn't one so we have to fail your car. Ying Yang 4 says" my STI that I had didn't look like this". So I ask YY4 if I could borrow his flashlight, lean over the engine bay and show YY4 where it is. I hand him back the flashlight and start walking back to the end. He promptly tells YY 1,2 & 3 "see I told you it had one". Hood closed, inspection passed.
Anyway for anyone getting inspected in NJ you can pass leaving your Stage 2 setup assuming you still have a cat on the DP, just be prepared for the "you don't have a cat bs".
