    Can't pass inspection

    I've had problem after problem with my car (2000 SS camaro) and now it's the catalytic converters that I'm having a problem with. Any advice would be great

    I believe you can contact your local GM dealer for a warranty replacement. Otherwise, go with aftermarket cats. You're getting a check engine light?

    Is the car stock?

    I don't believe the cats are still under warranty after 13 years. Aftermarket is the way to go. SLP has high flo cats made for your ride.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

    Cats are no longer under warranty. Not even with the extended time they gave. I ran out of time literally just weeks after the extended warranty expired for my car. That was a while ago.

    Can you pass the visual in your state with aftermarket cats?

    In California you would not be able to.

    You can get them tuned out of the computer for less than any replacement. They will not show up on a code check.

    If you have to have the sniffer test done, then you will need cats.
