Will I past Emission test w/PS Header

Hey Guys.

In Ontario Canada where I live we must emission test our car every 2 years to get a valid sticker. The question is do you think I will pass the E-test with a Pacestter Header installed?

Also,

does anyone know anything about the GENIE header for the B13. It cost about the same as the PS but, I don't think anyone on this forum uses it.

You might pass the "test" if you have a CAT. But most likely you will fail a visual inspection.

that really sucks... I am installing mine tuesday....

you think maybe the heat shield will fit over it?

Guess I will have to try.... But I guess they can still tell by the secondary ....

Oh well I guess I will have to pay $65.00 for a sticker next year...lol

Whenever I read stuff about guys having to pass emissions, I'm sooo happy I'm in Detroit, I can't recall the last time I heard someone here say they were worried about passing a sniffer test. I run my SE-R without a cat, I could only imagine what would happen to the machine if they hooked up my car, the thing would probably choke and die!

Soon, my child.....soon......

My Pacesetter header pretty much looks stock because its not even shiny or anything like that. Worst comes to worst, I can say that I took off the exhaust manifold cover, haha.

I can't believe you have a visual inspection. PA sticks the wand in the pipe and if you go over 160 PPM you fail. If you are under 5,000 miles like me, then you don't even do emissions. i will always be under this, so I am ripping the motor apart with no issues of emissions.

All we have to do in Canada is run the car on a dyno to check for pollutants...There is no visual test.

I can pass tests with any headers, without CAT, the exhaust only has to reach beyond the rear bumper and it has to be under like 150dB I finally found something good about living in Iceland!

umm...
