Default Likelihood of Passing NY State Inspection with Engine Mods

Hi Guys,

Wondering if anyone can comment on my chances of passing NY State inspection. I have a protuned 2015 WRX with the following engine mods:

COBB Resonated Turbo-back Exhaust
ETS Front Mount Intercooler
GrimSpeed Electronic Boost Control Solenoid
GrimSpeed Stealth Box Air Intake
Perrin Inlet Hose
TGV-EGR delete

I moved to NYC from NJ and my NJ new car inspection sticker is good through 2020. However, NY mandates the car get NYS inspection within a year of registration, which I am coming up on.

Thanks!

It has to pass an OBDII scan with no codes present and all readiness monitors set. There is also supposed to be a visual inspection for the emissions equipment being in place and not tampered with, but that varies between stations (whether they care and/or know what they are looking at).

Thanks. OBDII should pass if all they are looking for are CEL codes. I dont know how deeply they look into the fact that the ECU has been reflashed a number of times. The COBB turbo back has a CAT, but its a high flow one, which does give off a slight exhaust odor.

Reflash doesn't matter, the inspection machine can't see that. You need to make sure all the monitors are set or it will fail even with no codes and the light off.

This ^^^. My car has been mod'd well beyond what you have for many years, and always passed except once, when the tire dealer I no longer will go to failed me, for amongst a couple legit reasons, for having NON DOT HEADLAMPS. They were my retro fitted, stock, HID projectors. Since moved on to another minor repair/oil change place that couldn't believe it.

What readiness monitors are we talking about? B/c the monitor for rear O2 will record there being a Cat issue even before it lights up the CEL if it's turned on.

If you have an AccessPort you can tell the ECU not to report the error; however the OBDII monitor needs to see that there has been no CEL reported for a certain amount of time so that the monitor says ready. I'm sure other tuning software can do the same.

So when one gets the pro-tune, just tell the tuner to have the software not report the code but not turn off the monitor?

from the list of mods you mentioned I would agree there are no red flags that would fail the car, however Mulder is absolutely right...

Having the CEL off AND the readiness monitors set is necessary. It can also often come down to if the inspector knows or cares what they are looking at.

As long as you're not running a speed density map (had my sti swapped bugeye with a built engine protuned with a speed density map and the obd scanner they used for inspection wouldn't recognize the ecu) you should be good. Worst case scenario put the stock tune or a Cobb ots map on it and drive 30 miles staying off the boost to get the readiness check cleared and then inspect it, thats what I had to do with my bugeye. Dunno if it's the same with the newer ECU's.
