Texas Inspection questions
Monday, May 14, 2012 10:09 PM
So Im moving back to my homestate of Texas at the end of June and am of course bringing my DD Cav with me. I want to pass the state inspection test so what will they do? Here in georgia its not required so Im not sure what to expect. My car runs well, all lights work properly, still in great condition all around. I must say I have an OBX header, Magnaflow high flow cat, 2.25 inch piping, short ram intake and a K&N filter. How do I know ahead of time if anything needs to be done to pass emissions? What are you guys running performance wise and still pass the tests? Thanks!

Lol I googled it earlier today and I should be pretty clear aside from the check engine light thats mysteriously been on for the past 2 years. Even before I got my whole exhaust set up done it was already there. Got it scannedearlier and the only trouble codes were a bad EGR valve, oxygen sensor going bad and needs transmission fluid. All easy fixes in my opinion.

Trey, you keep passing with the CEL cause Temple/Killeen are in a county that requires safety only inspection, but i'm pretty sure that means your e-brake needs to work, so idk about that one.

i researched this myself FireRedCav, as I'm moving in a week to Temple. It depends on the county you're moving too. I'll see if i can't dig up that site.
