Washington State and Cat's
I just did the Walker Big Truck Muffler (NAPA 21470) over the weekend. Since I couldn't weld the hangers back up where they needed to be, I took the truck in to a shop to have the muffler replaced. I have an '01 cc long box with a manual. The owner of the shop has the same exact truck with an automatic. His does not have a cat, and mine does. At first he refused to believe me that my truck had a cat until he looked at it. He said they weren't required on '01's. He would not remove it for me nor would he make me an extension to do it myself because even though they aren't "required" for '01's since mine has one on it, he says it's illegal to remove it, but if I replace the entire exhaust, it's okay?
My question is: If I remove the cat myself and go through emissions, will I pass? If it fails, will I get busted for having an extension on there?
Also, can can a performance chip be programmed with an "emissions" setting that will lean it out just for taking the test with no cat?
Thanks. Oh, and it sounds great, almost as quiet as stock in the cab. Sounds like a jet if you're watching it drive by. Should be a little better once the cat's gone. No info on egt's since I don't have gauges or a chip yet...
