Hi all,
I'm contemplating de-catting but i know that in Harris Co, (Houston Tx ) the car gets plugged up to diagnostic during inspection. If i remove the cats how do i get tested?

Thanks all!
Eddie

Are you law enforcement?

Could be all wrong, but I hear:
Computer checks If ecu emissions codes are all ready and set from any prior induced faults.
If you dont have cats, some kinda of “fouler” for the sensor would be only hope to get codes and pass. Or just put cats on before inspection.

If you are caught in Mont county to the N: bye bye car n money for attorneys fees.
Stay the F away from nearby Mongomery county just N of Harris.

Now... if you happen to have stock cats, but the centers somehow got “burned out”, so they are effectively open, but arguably an unintended typical cat failure due to say... impact from running over a 4x4 across your lane of the highway that cracked the cat internals....
Well thats just repair and pass inspection to avoid ticket and prosecution.
Or long tube headers w green cats w similar thoughts in mind.

Hard to believe Michigan has no inspections but Texas does.

Not all of the state I don't think. Harris County has 4.7M people in it so they are pretty strict with anything to get more money.
