No. Mufflers don't affect emissions.

That's what I thought. So it just looks "obvious" that you're up to something if you pull in for a test without them? Well, I guess I'll find out in a little less than 3 years!

Most places probably won't even care to be honest. As long as the car doesn't throw any codes you're good to go.

I figure, now that we're no-sniff, OBD and visual check now, I pull in sans codes, they look and see that I have cats and o2 sensors plugged in, and a sticker under the hood with the CARB # for the shorties, they wouldn't delve to deeply into it.

Actually it is a noise Db restriction of not more than 80db. Which with no mufflers you would most likely fail.

not going to argue but technically you have to have some sort of muffler as well as be below a certain decibel level.

Yeah, Donnie was in Long Beach and they had a DB machine on the street, like the ones showing your speed and said he was at 92 and would get a ticket in the mail!

Doesn't sound right. Those roadside smog tests are supposed to be just data captures for how well smog is working. Not as a ticket/punishment/fine type of thing. I'd fight it if I were him...but hell, I fight everything! LoL

These are supposed to be "manned" stations. Since the sensor isn't 1 meter from the source and it doesn't know the RPM that the car was running at it won't be accurate.

The 94dB reading is at 50% of redline measured at 1 meter from the rear of the car. At WOT I'm at 121dB.
