    Hey guys,

    Looking to go catless headers... I'm new to jersey so what are my chances of failing inspection?

    Thanks

    they look for a cat with a mirror under the truck. some of my car buddies have gotten away with a resonator that could pass as a cat. or you could have one gutted.

    as for the CEL, there are ways around that too, including a tune. i've seen special adapters that attach to O2 sensors that supposedly can assist with preventing CELs. CEL is auto fail though.

    If you bought your truck new in Jersey then you have 5 years before inspection. If you bought it out of state, you are screwed if you pull off the cats. Welcome to New Jersey. The small power increase isn't worth the inspection troubles you will have. Leave the cats in place.

    That’s if it’s new. Otherwise it would be every two years. Just goes by your inspection sticker and how much you want to potentially swap exhaust parts

    My father has a tuned 07 Z06 with longtube headers and catted x-pipe and passes inspection no problem. Different vehicle but I would consider a tune if you’re changing those parts anyway.

    Yes, ofcourse id tune it... just looking to see if there was any way it would pass by itself. really seeing if anyone has actually done it. The Z06 probably falls under a different category due to its age.
