    inspection

    If you're running a catless downpipe and tuned with flashpro, will you pass inspection when they hook your car to the computer? I know I wont pass the visual but i'm not worried about that.

    With flashpro you can turn off the secondary O2 sensor. It will come up as pass in there test.

    Thanks, really wanted to go catless but did not want any inspection issues. As long as they can hook it up to there computer and it passes they don't care. Looks like ill be going catless for my dp.

    Wrong. Disabling the secondary o2 sensor makes the test come up 'not ready for testing.' When you disable the o2 on flashpro you're only eliminating the CEL. When disabled, it won't show up on the emissions test when they plug in the OBDII and because of that, that catylitic will also come up 'not ready for testing.' And you know what that means? 2 fails = no emissions.


    Trust me, it literally happened to me today. I'm getting an o2 defouler so I can enable the secondary o2 and not throw a CEL.
    RV6 told me the same thing which is why i went with them instead of the FR w/ defouler. Now, I'm running around like an idiot trying to get a defouler so I can get inspected before the end of month.

    Don't worry about the $10k federal fine if you get caught. And certainly don't worry about people (like me)that have asthma. We really don't need to breathe air that's clean (and make sure you stay way back at the end of any group drives you go on because your car will STINK.

    Looks like there is a was a issue with Hondata and they released a update. However it seems they no longer support the forced readiness, they just keep the CEL from coming on. Where is the defouler that came with your RV6 downpipe? They are pretty reliable once set, sometimes they take some tweaking to get right.

    I never received a defouler with my DP. I don't think you were sending them with the DP then. Care to send one so I can cancel the $55 dollar order I just put in for one?

    Federal traffic Police? Never heard of them. EPA setting up roadblocks for catalytic converter checks? Never heard of that either. Most states have laws requiring an emissions control device and the absence thereof is only a misdemeanor and a fix-it ticket. I guess since we should all be driving electric cars since they don't produce any pollution. Well, on the back end that is, because where does electricity come from? Coal! Good ol' clean burning zero emissions coal. And good luck telling the Chinese and Indians to worry about the air quality because they really don't care. Hopefully the group drives move faster than parked because that is really the only way you're going to smell the exhaust from the car in front of you if it doesn't have a catalytic converter.

    I didn't order the defouler through you guys, I was asking if you'd send me yours so that I could cancel the other order. Especially if I was supposed to have received one with my DP.
