So in anchorage.. when they IM your cars, do they hook the exhaust up to a smog machine, or just plug it in to the obd?

I think they only use the sniffer if it is 95 or older, they do a visual check though

you guys are not going to get some licensed shop to respond on here. the fines and loss of licenses are just not worth it.

the ap turns off P0420, the code that they probably look for. so in that aspect im fine, i can turn off any check engine light i want w/ enginuity.. BUT im 100% catless.. I have a STi catback, with a test pipe where the cat was. When I get my car registered up here, I guess im gonna have to barrow someone's catted cat back hahaha

it should. as long as it's catted. that's why a lot of people will opt for the catted vs catless. less hassle come IM time.

A tough IM tech could still fail you for the "visual" inspection. I had a Neon a few years ago that I put a header on. The header was CARB legal but the stickers had burned off. Since he saw a "non-factory" exhaust modification, he failed me and wouldn't even hook up the OBD2 port or the sniffer.

Yeah, even the "high-temp" coating burned off, lol. The company said it was guaranteed not to burn off but never answered my e-mails, nor called me back on the matter.
