Default Stage kits and OBD emission test

The Great State of Ohio, in which I reside, has just started emission testing by plugging into the OBD system (they formerly had used tailpipe testing). Does anyone (3Bar?) know if the Stage 1 / Stage 2 kits will fail this test. I fear the worst...[:0]

Thanks

I am in the same boat. I bought what I thought was a security/ satelite locator system that turned into a telemetry OBD monitoring system. I don't have to do smog testing, but I MUST be up to snuff on OBD at all times. (I have a grace period to fix anything that doesn't register.)

The State of California is considering going 100% with this system soon. It is an administrative savings, and anything that saves $$ is high on the list.

For those Mopar Performance folks that listen. Without OBD, California will become a foreign country to you. How much do you really want to play with the big boys of aftermarket?

Good question. Depends on what part of OBD are they monitoring, OBDI (electrical connections) will pass with flying colors. OBDII might, not sure. I'll see if the right person can answer that this week.

Here in GA, the Strom Troopers......err, State EPA, has tests in the 13 County Metro Atlanta area that include not only tailpipe and OBD hookups, but then you have to run your vehicle on a dyno, which, by their own admission, they know will cause 30% more failures since the car is under load.Fortunately, I live one county away, and it's a very poor sparsely populated county, so hopefully we can keep it out of there for a few more years.

TripleJackInGA,

If DEQ gets to your doorstep, there will truly be no place to hide.

Maybe when I retire I'll look for the job of being the attendant at that DEQ station, and we will finally get that cold brew on the porch we discussed.
