I am going to be stationed at beale afb in jan and i was just curious if anyone near there has had issues with smogging their car with either a test pipe or a gutted cat. i gutted my cat about 5 months ago without the intention of going there (im in texas where they dont give a damn) and im just worried about passing smog with it.

you should be okay as long as it passes the visual inspection.
Do you have a chip?
APR would be good because it can ignore the cat efficiency code iirc . . .

checks. If he hasn't reset the ECU and it is still ready from before the gutting, then he should be ok emissions wise. But the CEL may have already come on since then.

stock looking cat or at least one with a CARB stamp. So I don't think he'll even get as far as the sniffer.

I had no codes either, did the spark plug nonfouler.
