Anyone up to date with the new emmision laws that took effect October 1st. For older pre95 OBD cars?

I wander if I can now get rid of my cats and EGR system change to a HUGE camshaft. :D JK.

Seriously I think the Dyno tests are done with and not sure if they need a sniff test anymore as long as safty passes. Ive been needing a sticker for a long time, last time I failed.

OBD1 cars are no longer checked for emissions. However, the car will fail if black smoke is present in the exhaust.

I'm guessing it's the same as NH. No smog test, but they check to see if cats are present. But there are plenty of ways to get around that...;)
