OBD-I and inspection.

I got a question for all you 5th genners that have converted to OBD-I for tuning purposes...

Do you have any problems passing inspection? Also, what state are you from?

I ask because I had always heard that where I live (NJ), if you have a 96+ car and you converted back to OBD-I, they fail you immediately solely for not having OBD-II like a 96+ is supposed to since they test OBD-II cars directly by their ECU diagnostic port... I believe ogsmakdade had a similar problem with his inspection

I would think that if you switch to OBD-I they should just be able to test your car the way they test all OBD-I cars, put the little sniffer thing in the exhaust...

Any info?

Re: OBD-I and inspection.

yup unfortunately Mike, i'm almost positive here in jersey its an immediate fail since they cannot hook up to the OBD2 port to scan the system.

Re: OBD-I and inspection.

Yeah I thought so... that is so lame...

I don't understand why they can't just test it the way they test every car produced before 1996 lol...

I wonder if anyone knows of any private inspection garages that can be "persuaded" to test it with the old method.
