if all you want to do is pass emissions, first find a new mechanic. I don't know NY state, but if you have a visual inspection (essentially following California's CARB garbage) along with the ODB-II scan, sniffer test, etc then putting long tubes on is going to be trouble. Long Tubes are illegal in all 50 states. Some states, and some municipalities with in states will ignore Long Tubes, some won't.

You need to pull the codes and find out why the engine light is on. Bad cat, bad o2 sensor, running rich, etc. Don't **** away $2,000 for a ton of grief. If you post the codes, we might be able to point you in the right direction. Advance Auto, Pep Boys, Autozone, all will pull the trouble code for you for free.

Should've read "cat CODES are..." For OP when he gets the codes read. Catalyst efficiency codes are usually P042x.
