It was inspected May 2014 before I owned it and apparently passed. I have read this topic so I just want to be sure I do the right thing. Should I get cats put inline before I remove the pump or not? Should I just remove the pump and be done with it. The A/C has been converted to 134A so I will continue to use it, living in Texas it's a requirement.
I'm in Texas too. Once your car is 25 years old, which is next year, they wont sniff test it. Safety inspection only. I just got mine inspected, it cost like $13.50 or something. Awesome.
Dump the smog crap and don't look back!
