    T/A has gone almost 4 years now without a notice for the emissions. I got the first notice less than a month after registering it in November '07, and haven't seen one since.
    Did they? I hope not. I get em every two years like clockwork.

    Nope...my GTP went a year after registration before I got my first one, then got one for this September, 15 months after my first one. I was kind of expecting the one that came for the GTP was the one for the T/A, but alas, it was not.

    I was talking about Md adding a visual. Where did you hear this? My neighbor said he heard that too but couldn't confirm it. I just had my truck done in Annapolis. They didn't look under it but they were using mirrors on a Camry-like car in front of me. I have always heard Annapolis may do this so I didn't think anything of it.

    I checked the MVAs website and it doesn't say anything about adding a visual. To the original poster I'd still say hit the Pasedena station. Pretty much all of F Body Centrals customers go there and never have a problem. http://www.mva.maryland.gov/MVA-Prog...IP%20Facts.pdf

    just to add a note for the OP, make sure if your delete the EGR that you peel off the sticker in the engine bay explaining where all the EGR parts go, the techs will often check for a sticker like that.

    weird, I live in a non-emmissions county, and the ones here pop the hood and check for emmissions equipment, but dont check for cats/hook up my exhaust to an emmissions machine.

    fortunatly, my hometown is a small town and I can get a sticker without any hassle at all.

    Okay so I went and got my emissions done today in GLen Burnie. I was three cars back in the middle lane and I see the tester in the right lane looking under the car he's testing with the mirror. Then I saw the tester in the middle lane look under the car he's testing with the mirror. At this point I'm getting nervous so I pull into the left lane. There's a fairly young female tester there. She goes around her car with the mirror really quickly. Didn't even look like she gave a shit, just going thru the motions. By the time it is my turn she is gone and there's a young guy there. Honestly I think he liked my car as he didn't use the mirror at all, just plugged into my dash and passed me. I swear they looked under every other car there. Phew. Not sure if they were looking for cats or maybe cutouts, as they're illegal here too. Anyways, I'm good for two more years.
