Default VA Safety Inspections + Rotated/Catless setups

Hey All,

I'm moving down to VA (Glen Allen, Henrico County) in the next couple weeks. I hear the inspections can kind of be a PITA with regards to being catless. Just wondering if anyone has suggestions on inspection shops. Feel free to PM me.

Thanks!

I don't think the safety inspections include anything like rotated or catless setups. My downpipe is catted but I have an EWG setup that did not raise any concerns.

The safety inspection has a set checklist - nothing in it says anything about cats being there or not.

I don't think they do emissions tests except in northern VA so you should be good.

Actually, it does. See part 17 of the safety inspection checklist.

Specifically, the counties/cities where you must have an emissions test are:

Counties: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford
Cities: Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, Manassas Park

I stand corrected on the checklist.

Thank you, Dan at Mach V (met you a couple times at the shop).
