So can someone answer the question if you have a newer car 2005 with OBD do they still visually look for a Catalytic converter or do they simply scan your OBD? I ask because I still have 2 cats by the header just removed one under the middle of the car.

Never had them look for my cat, because my car is too low for their mirror to fit under. Passed with a straight pipe no problems.

Different cars have different cat converter requirements. My 1987 RX7 doesn't legally need to have a cat converter, but I need to meet the requirements for air care to pass, ie.because I don't legally need one, it doesn't change my measurements I need to hit.

I put one on to make it easier.

I still fail.

Yeah such a broken cash grab program. I have my 2 cats still intact at the header just removed the one running down the middle centre of the car. My car is a 2005 so hopefully they just OBD it.

Luckily they will stop the AirCare program in 2014 if im not mistaken, apparently they're losing more money than they are making, so STRAIGHT PIPES ALL AROUND!

They checked for a cat and did the OBD scan when I went to aircare my year 2000 Integra.
