In addition, diesel vehicles, RVs AND motorcycles are exempt from testing in any case.
So you can determined for yourself what the odds are of running into any problems.
I'd recommend changing the tailpipes and not messing with the emission system... But hey, I don't understand all that technical stuff anyway...
Yep I agree, I was just thinking about this as it applies to all 100 counties as an inspection item and not an emission tail pipe test. Motorcycles are only exempt from the Tail Pipe Emission Test in NC. That's why I was concerned about removing the CAT to put on new pipes or even just bypass the CAT with the tube mod or chamber mod.
