DO you have O2 spacers? Otherwise no real way to pass anymore as the state has cracked down on this and inspections. I would think you would fail a sniffer test but I don't know if they still do that.

Last resort put stock cats on, pass, put catless back on.

In VA they allow for one failed monitor. With that said, could I just flash to stock, ensure readiness is set albeit without a CEL and pass?!

Smog and visual are non issues for me.

Car only has DP's with stock exhaust.

Awesome!
MD probably allows for one monitor to be in the not ready state. Do you mind posting the results on here or could you tell us if all monitors passed/ready state?

So hold. You have Catless DP w tune when to emissions pass with flying colors? I was under the impression that once you have those DP you fail right away. So I’m holding off to jump to stage 2 For nothing????

Before heading to the emission test I am 80% sure I am going to failed because of the DP , but when the result came out it rally surprised me. If you don't have the CEL on I am sure you will have no issues passing using kiosk.
