I am currently deployed in Iraq- Before I left i took off my off-road H-Pipe, and put the stock cats back on so that while i am deployed my wife can get emissions done in a few months. I didnt put a tune that turned back on the rear o2's before i left. My question is: Will it pass when she goes to take it in, or do i need to get a tune that turns them back on before she takes it to get emissions done? Any help would be great, thanks.

The rear O2s will have to be turned back on, or it will come up as "Not ready" when testing via ODBII.

Do you have the stock airbox and intake? If you do you could have someone throw that back on and return the tune to stock, and you shouldn't have any issues. Otherwise, yes you need a new tune. Let me know if I can help, I'm in the area.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the help. I think i will have someone go over to the house and install the stock airbox and put the stock tune back in.

Hey guys, I need a little help here. I just went in for emission here in Ontario and the car failed.

It only failed the "Curb idle" test with a reading of 1.56% and limit set at 0.70%. Any ideas as to how I can correct this? The current mods to the car are FRPP cams, JLT intake, JB shortie headers, and a custom dyno tune.

Any help is appreciated.

Which measurement was that pear? CO? Do you have cats? If not, you'll need them. If you have cats, high CO indicated that it is running rich. The overlap on those Hotrod cams does not help. You may have to have an emmisions tune made to lean it out.

Seabee, I dunno how they do it where you are, but there's pretty much noone to bribe to pass here. They scan your VIN and plate into the computer, then their OBD2 computer reads the VIN again off your PCM and checks monitor status.. All the guy at the lane does is push the button and give you the form when it prints, nothing anyone can do about it if your monitors aren't all passed.

Yeah it was the CO% reading and I do have the stock cats. I will be taking the car in for a diagnostic reading sometime soon. And if they quote me to replace my cams then i qualify for a "conditional pass" therefore I don't need the car to pass.

I'm going to have to lean it out at idle. I just hate emissions so much BS.

That's kinda odd that they still do that useless idle sniff test up there. Really it would not take much for a tuner to make you a tune that will reduce the CO enough at idle. Those idle tests don't really proove anything, and you can probably make a lawnmower pass if you try.

Yeah, tell me about it, during the 1700 RPM test it registers almost no CO. I'm just gonna get a conditional pass this time and get a emissions tune from AM after the CMCV plates go on. Today being the day the plate stickers expires kinda sucks but I only took it out of storage on Monday.

Hopefully they quote me something over $450 so that I can qualify for the conditional pass.

A quote for having an aftermarket part removed is enough to qualify for that? Around here it has to be an actual repair, like for a problem with the car.

Yeah, good thing for it too. All the guy wrote down was he suspects the cams and tune to be the reason and gave me the conditional pass. but I did have to pay $200 for him to look at it and tell me something I already knew.
