Default WA state emissions testing ending?

Ive seen the old articles that WA st emissions testing (what a money grab!) might end in 2019 or 2020. Articles dated 2011-2013. Anyone know if this is true?


Reason I ask is, whether I go with shorty headers and cat delete (put cats back on for emissions) or just go Long tube headers.


Fairly new mustang owner in Puyallup. (my first was a 1969 Coupe)

I heard the same thing for PA, but it's not an END, just an END to the current method of
testing. All new machines will be coming out. It's another money grab for the states,
because you HAVE to buy their emissions machines. I think it's going to be once
every so many years now, because the emissions controls on cars are so spot on.
in fact, the failure rate is now below 3 percent according to PennDOT. Plus there
are still counties that do not require emissions, it's not a all in state, and it's also not
fair those who have to make the yearly trip. All it is now, is a money maker for shops,
because cars today meed such high FEDERAL levels, and there are no federal tests,
so why should there be state tests. SO, there is also talk of ending emissions tests
in PA, and exempting cars that are > 20 years old. We'll see what happens...

Our emissions testing is and has been every 2 years. My car is due next year as my tags are due next month, June.


I may still go with shorty headers and H pipe for some low torque(?) for my gears and keep the stock just in case...
