Except, I think there will be some code stored in the computer when you reset it until everything is scanned and complete. Your CEL for no cats will come on before that. Once the scan is complete and no codes appear, that code, I think, P1000 or something will go away. So, with no cats, either you will have one code or the other which will both fail you.

What kinda fine do you get for running O/R midpipes (In Iowa to be specific) I tried google but had no luck.

What is this rumor about MIL eliminators not working half the time? Is there any merit to it?

I think that's an exaggeration, mine work great and everybody I know never had a problem with them.

For sure. If you disconnect the battery, there will be a code that says something like "all of the diagnostics havnt been complete" and that code will go away once all the tests are complete....but the cel will come on before that because it will fail the o2 sensors.

Is off road alot less restrictive because it has no cats? How about sound, are they alot louder? Seems like getting a catted midpipe would be better because you would A.) pass emissions easier B.) not have to worry about check engine light.

I'll take box letter "A".

Here in CA., no cats = fail visual inspection = no smog certificate = no registration = a heck of a lot of frustration.
