Emissions testing

I was wondering if my car was "vandalized" and my rear cat was gutted would it still pass the sniffer?

As of January 2013, Model year 2000 and newer vehicles will no longer have to get the sniffer test, only a visual and OBDII diagnostic check.

Keep in mind though. The car itself is doing the "sniffing". If the rear o2 shows the cat isn't working then they will fail you. The thing we do not know yet is how this new smog will work with cars that have things like that turned off in the tune.

2 cats, 2 resonators. The cat is in front. I don't think you'd gain much by gutting the resonators.

Wait do you have a V6? Cause I'm not familiar with that, so I should shut up lol.
