RV6 PCD Question

So I just installed richies pcds and j pipe and I LOVE the sound and feel of em, def a must mod. My question is, to anyone that has installed them, have you had any problems getting it inspected? (i.e. Passing emissions)

depends on what type of emissions inspection they do where you live, cause here in colorado, it would NOT pass a visual inspection, if they decided to look; let alone tryin to pass the sniff test lol

Thanks, thats perfect. It says On-Board Diagnostics check and gas cap check, so I should be good. I know a couple guys that own shops around here too and they are pretty lenient, so I guess we'll see in January. haha

yeah all the testing done here (for gas engines, diesel's are seperate) is centralized, WITH only one company contracted to do it for the state , so yeah no under the table passing here (and part of the reason for going to centralized testing was to help get rid of the corruption)
and as far as that diesel vehicle thing, certified independent shops still do those though

That is only true if your car is less than 6 years old. After that, they put your car on a dyno and go up to 30 ~ 40 mph to get the actual emission numbers off the computer. If your O2 sensors aren't reading right then you are f***ed and need to fix it or face some legal consequences. I had a 10.5 year old 6th gen Accord V6 and emission test like a dyno was EVERY year once the car passes 6 years old. And yes, I'm IN Chicago area.

That is not true at all. I'm from orland park and have lived in Chicago. I have an 03 350z that had hfcs among other mods and had emissions twice on it and they only plug in. Also had a 1997 Buick century and it was the same thing.

as said before, depends on your state and it's test procedures.....







cause here, if the vehicle is less then 5 years old, no emissions test is needed (they assume new cars are stilling running clean, and relatively lower mileage), but after 5 years and 2 years there after, it is

AND ALMOST every car goes on the dyno, other then extremely old ones (~1985?) which were not required back in the day still don't (instead they get a idle and 2500 rpm test); also cars with excessively low clearance or too large of a tire, or low profile of a tire FROM THE FACTORY (and they WILL make you put it back to stock, in order to run it on the dyno)(as far cars with those exceptions, again they run the idle and 2500 rpm test)


and YES they do butt-probe the car, along with hooking up to the DLC

I've heard of that before, but never had my car on a dyno for an inspection... none of the shops that do inspections around here even have dynos.

it's centralized testing here (ie: no independent shop does it anymore), and every test center actually has a couple of dynos, and they get run ALL day long, cause all the places do is emissions testing, nothing else

Only thing they check for here is gas cap integrity and for OBDII codes. No codes, you pass. No centralized testing, most lube places can do the testing and they don't look too closely, from what I could tell they look to see at the top of the engine if the O2 sensors are all plugged in.

How are you not getting a CEL? Looking at the PCD, there are two O2 bungs on each, primary and secondary I presure. How are the secondary O2 sensors not picking up that the precats are gone? Are you using O2 sims or non-fouler extenders?

Richie provides O2 sims as part of the PCD package.

+1 The PCDs come with Sims.

The top O2s just thread in same as factory, but the secondary thread into an elbow that threads into the PCD.

Yup, and I've had em on for I'd say 2 months now and no code. Well... I did have one pop up, It said bank 1 and 2 O2 sensors (top of cats) were stuck lean. But that code has been comin on ever since I put my Cold Air Intake on and it usually goes off on its own. So they really do work.

Took me all day... but I think once you do it, you see what has to be done and I def could get it done quicker now. Hardest part is getting the heatshield off the rear car (mine was rusted to **** and I ended up just breakin it off), once you get that off it litterally falls right out.
