| | NC Emissions testing ?s
I've lived in NC all my life so I'm familiar with the testing part. However, I'm in the process of buying a 99 Z with an offroad ypipe, cam, and a good tune. The car is registered in SC currently where they have no inspections. I'm curious as to what all parameters the computer reads when they hook it up. The place I take my 2000 Silverado to just hooks the computer up to the port and reads everything that way, no sniffer in the tailpipe. This car has no check engine lights and everything's been programmed out. My thought was that since they never look under my truck to see if the cats are there (aftermarket exhaust too) I may try my luck. If nothing else, I'll put a couple of cats on it to pass visual. I'm not worried about the visual part as much, but am more worried about if somethings a little off with the tune and the numbers are strange, but with no check engine lights, will it still pass? I've been told the tune is a little rich for safety, will this matter? I'm in Winston Salem, anybody have any idea?
Also, anybody got any idea how long you have to get a car inspected before they'll issue a registration?
