How do you guys pass emissions with your modded 3s'?

well this is what i know or assume how they do emissions... visual inspection for all years of course, then they put a car on the dyno and put an sniffer deal on the tailpipe then you go a certain speed on a dyno. and if the vehicle 95 and up is OBDII if hooks up to their computer and they test/read the vitals. if ifs OBDI then sniffer and dyno. What about OBDI AWD vehicles...? i think they just put it on the sniffer and do a visual on all emissions crap. i know they dont have an awd dyno. i wonder how AWD OBDII vehicles are tested...

i have a 95 vr4 and that is a OBDI and II hybrid. I was wondering how that would work. I just bought an AEM EMS and am wondering if they will even attempt to plug it in to the ECU i dont have.

my car is registered in WA and ill be moving back to california next year. I want to know what the deal is on registering in CA with an out of state vehicle.

They don't hook up anything, but you will probably be voided with an aem unless you get a nice shop.

I passed without precats and some vacuum reduction.

You HAVE to have EGR and a cat, those are the two big things.

I live in Sacramento and I just had my VR4 smugged last month. They didn't put it on a dyno they just put the sniffer on and left it in neutral and rev'ed to about 3k rpms for a little while. And I passed with ridiculously low numbers, granted my car is stock though.
