Default Firestone Clueless?

So I took the 05 STi to Firestone on base today to get safety and emission done so I can renew the registration on the car. Well safety passed with no problems even though the frame and exhaust hangs lower than 3" from the ground but they failed me for emissions. Apparently my catted Cobb downpipe does not have a cat. They came out and told me that my car didn't have a catalyst and I was like what did it fall off lol. He was like I'm not trying to be an ass, but I didn't see one so the guy walked out with me and I had to show him where the cat was on my car. He was like thats the smallest cat that I have ever seen and I was like well for one there is no bulky heat shields on it and its a high-flow cat.

Me too. Normally they will just put a comment on the computer saying what I want and that is isn't covered if the tires wear.

at first I didn't, I fought it saying that the downpipe had a cat and had to go out and physically show him where it was on the downpipe. I had already been there for about an hr and a half and then 30 more minutes for them to go do another emissions test.
