If I didn't have emissions in my county I would not do anything and would leave the check engine light on. One of the employees of Torq told me that the SCT Tune would fix me passing Emissions(making the readiness codes in the "ready" status). I've been told by 2 different companies it is totally safe not to do anything but I would have the check engine light on and I would not get all the gains of the mods. Again I did this setup primarily for sound and if I get horsepower great. Now with the SCT tuner you can flash it back to stock but the ECM has a counter that tells whoever reading it that something has been flashed and how many times. Also the SCT tuner goes through the OBD port and the ECM does not come out. If you have any questions that I can answer please let me know. I am waiting for people at Chevy to contact me back. Thank you for following.
That really sucks. I would consider at least returning the green cats. If they do not work on this car without a tune then why spend the extra $$$. From what I read they cost a bunch more than the standard high flows.... right?

Now I can't get Kook's to call me back. I guess they have 0 interest in helping me fix this problem.
