the UTEC can disable your check engine light, but the ECU will still store the code indicating the problem. this means that you will fail even though your CEL is disabled.

The CEL will still flash for knock when you have it disabled in the Utec.

You probably wouldn't pass since you're catless anyways. You live in ny though. I bet you can find a place that will let your car pass emissions for the right price. Or you could put the car back to stock for the test. I lived in ny when I had my first car, and that thing passed so many emissions test that it shouldn't have.....

peace
