But that's a catch-22 because you cannot pass emissions with the O2's turned off, all sensors must be reading "ready"
Yeah, that was my worry since we have OBDII/emissions testing here. I talked with the tuner today, and he assures me that the car will pass all testing after the install. Hopefully he's a straight shooter here. He's not pushing a sale, and busier than a 3 legged man in a butt kicking contest.

Well, I guess I'll have to trust this and if it doesn't work out so be it.
