Gets out and asks the guy how many cats a subaru has
Guy 2 answers 2
So Guy 1 tells guy 2 that I removed all my cats
I intervene and tell them I have a cat on the car and the second thing is a resonance chamber, not a cat.
Guy 2 gets in my car and rolls over the camera a couple times
Gets his boss
His boss is confused so he tells me that I don't have a subaru approved cat and exhaust system, he has to fail me.
The end

I have a SPT exhaust system, which is subaru approved and my cat is epa approved for everywhere except cali. I dunno if I should bring them the paperwork or if I should just go to a different station...

I looked up the law:

N.J.A.C. 4 13:20-43.8 section e states:

not sure where that leaves me but they make it sound like only OEM cats are allowed
I'm pretty sure that any cat tampering that is not OEM was deemed not legal federally. Not 100% sure but even when I stopped by a meineke, they have a sigh thag they will not remove or replace any cats unless they are being replaced with a oem one.
