Default Ohio E-check on a 94 VR4

Didn't realize there was an Ohio specific thread.

Moving to Cleveland soon for work. What does the E-check involve with a '94 VR4?

I have the EGR and vac reduction done, gutted pre-cats and no main cat, lots of mods. How much of a pain is the E-check?

- Is it a visual inspection? If so, what are they looking for?
- I'd assume they can't hook up to the Hybrid '94 ECU?
- Tailpipe sniffer? If so, can they handle the full time AWD? Or just sniffer on idle and revving in neutral?

They clipped something on my exhaust on my NA and just used that. They asked if it had AWD and it looked like they have two sets of rollers.

you are correct. echeck consists of visual test and tailpipe sniffer and gas cap pressurization. most cars will not pass without at least 1 cat but it depends. i hadn't driven my car in two years and i went in and passed the visual test (yet i don't have a cat, luckily the guy checking it was very old), and i passed the sniffer (also have gutted pre cats). i have some exhaust leaks so they had to run my car on the roller in second gear... all i can say is good luck with it, i know a lot of people who have trouble passing. my suggestion would be to create some exhaust leaks, trust me it will help

also, they have a self check in twinsburg now so you might be able to go to that

pretty sure the self check is for '96 and up OBD II cars.

Ok, thanks. I'll try the collector plate route. Sure as heck have more than $5k in the car. I just have to dig up all the receipts. Heck, the 3 diffs alone are pretty close to that. Actually the 3 diffs PLUS the tranny rebuild top that, not to mentioned everything else.
