Anything in my state past 1996 is not subject to emissions.
Because the state law about emissions has nothing to do with it - the Federal over rides them. If the states failed to comply then they lose their highway money. So if the federal law says it had a cat when it was built, then it has to be on there. NY used to do the same thing - it had to be there even if it wan't working, so a lot of guys used to take the guts out of the cat and then put the cat housing back on. In this case, what the state does is called "visual inspection" - they just look and see if its on there, but they don't actually test the emissions. But like I said, the cat is a Federal requirement on vehicles that originally had them. After that, the states could add whatever emissions on top of that, that they felt ws needed.

Nowdays my state (NY) does emissions like California, God only knows why. I think they did it to raise more money. That's in addition to the visual inspection and the mechanical.

I'm actually glad they do the mechanical inspection because I've seen the crap on the road in other states and frankly it scares me to drive there.

I know in Missouri that they check emissions equipment as a part of the every 2 year safety check, even though all pre-OBD vehichles are exempt from the emissions check. They aren't consistent, but no cat or a plate where your EGR valve should be is a guaranteed fail.

Yeah that's pretty much true in most states - the cat and EGR have to be there even if they're not working or else its guaranteed fail.

By the way, The only way that I know to get exempted from everything, is to get registered as an "antique" or a "classic".

Yeah. In NY its 25 yrs, but then they exempt you from everything. I believe the insurance goes way down too. So I gotta wait another 5 yrs.

Blowtorch and a heavy bar of scrap iron. Melt the core and beat it out one end.
