    Some states are funny about the location of the cats as well,,,can't move them,,,and long tubes put them further down stream. Just depends on where you live and what they want.

    I don't know if Chicago does, or any of the immediate surrounding area. Who knows for sure? Who lives there?

    We have emmissions testing in the city, but its only OBD-II plug in test. As long as you don't have the SES light on you pass. They also just eliminated all testing for all pre-obd-II cars a few months ago.

    That sure makes it easy. The car does all the testing for the testers.

    I dont have cats and it sounds frikin great with a 3 inch flowmaster and dual tips. I also have a nice orange check engine light on. Its got some 2nd gear low end torque loss because of it when shes cold. Which do you guys prefer.. o2 sims or tuning it out? Tuning it out seems to be more worthwhile...

    I prefer tuning it out, but I haven't done it yet. I stare at the orange light also....

    Tuning is the only way to go man.Not only do you delete the rear o2's but you go ahead and get a wideband tune while your at it and turn off all the other egr,air,tcs and assorted crap slowing you down.
    HPTuners is a great thing.
