What does a decat do for registering a car in a new state (other than California). I don't plan on living there.

If there is an emissions test, then chances are you'll fail.

This replaces the cat. The larini decat reduces engine bay temperatures, improves exhaust flow, saves weight, and most importantly, assists in shooting flames.

Thanks, then I'm gonna have to wait a little before I do that mod until I find a more permanent place to live other than California or New Jersey.

I'd be interested but not really sure to understand why the CEl eliminator will only do its job after 1000 miles or so...

Tommy, nice meeting you as well! We had a blast.

I did a write up on this a few months ago, but can't find it. At first, it takes about 50 miles before the ECU recognizes that the cat is missing. Then the CEL comes on. Mine stayed on for about 1000-1500 miles or so until the ECU learned that the cat was missing, and the CEL never came on again. Might be different with your car.
