Advice on passing emissions

Hi, installed Kline exhaust and now can't pass the emissions test as the Stage 3 Cobb tune is all good but the sensors are "Not Ready". With the Regular tune, the engine gives an error on oxygen sensors.

I've been told that spacers need to be installed to get around this issue. Can somebody advice on what kind of spacers and who can do the job in Seattle area.

Thanks,
Nick

Hi Nick. If you’re tune is modified to run in Motorsports mode without catalytic converter is it will not check in. So you’re on the right track you have to get oxygen sensor spacers to do this mechanically then you can run the OTS map and be OK.

Hi Sam, the cats are there, but 100 cell high flow and they give an error. So the spacer is exactly what I'm looking for. Any idea who can do the job in the Seattle area?

Have to move to another country, so planning to sell the car, so it's a bit of an emergency.

Sorry if I don’t recall did you get it from me? We have to see what exact configuration you have. The new 100cel Systems have a built-in provision. If you can send me a picture that would be a big help and feel free to text whatever allows me to assist you ASAP. From there I can tell you what to do or you might actually be just fine. I’ll be here for you…310-600-1850

So based on my conversation with Sam, I need to put my old exhaust back. Any shops that can swap the exhaust and then put the Kline back on? Or install a spacer?

I think we can get away with those they usually come with unless we know we have tuning. I just figure since it’s being sold putting stock on might be the easiest to avoid other problems maybe with a PDI inspection

Didn't realize you were selling it. In that case like Sam said just put a stock exhaust on it.
