stainless power inspection failure

Last year I installed Stainless Power LT headers and cats, and today my car failed inspection. They said the cats are supposed to have markings on them (date of manufacture, and some other stuff), and mine had no markings at all. I live in Virginia. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

No long tube headers are legal on a 2010 to start with . IF THEY LOOK ,YOUR COOKED. This is not news to anyone . Green cats that are much more expensive may have the numbers/markings .

Keep on going to different places till someone doesn't look. That's what I had to do.

Just go to a different inspection station. Luckily, I live in the part of the county that doesn't require inspection. But friends who do require inspection go to stations that only test for emissions and don't actually look at the under carriage of your car.

The only problem with another station may be that "rejected" sticker on the window.

Or was this emissions inspection?

Good luck.

I live in VA and you remove that rejected sticker before you get to El Heffe's shop.

Technically any modification to factory exhaust other than to repair damage is illegal in VA, that includes cat and axle backs.
