I just moved to NJ from an inspection-free state. I haven't done the inspection myself yet, but have done some reading on what to expect. They just plug in the computer to check the emissions systems.

Unfortunately, they check for readiness of all emissions systems. Stage 2 tunes typically disable rear 02 readiness so you don't get a CEL from your downpipe.

So far I've heard of two options:
1) reinstall stock downpipe and flash back to stock
2) install rear 02 spacer and reflash to stage 1

Same here, I got some occasional -2.25 pull when it's hot out on when I was Eurodyne stage 1.

I thought the cobb stage 2 didn't clear the check engine light from a dp install. I have a spacer on mine and drove around for a while before tuning and didn't throw a code.

Yeah they just plug the car in and check codes and they might drive it over a camera? Not 100% sure.

In any case I'll just flash to stock just to be safe.

The COBB stage 2 flash cleared my downpipe CEL light.

Good to know. I didn't realize since I put a spacer on and then tuned. Never had a CEL. So since it does that would I just have to flash down to stage 1 to pass my inspection?

Cobb support seems to think I have a boost leak - but since I've only changed the intake (reinstalled twice now) and since I can change the behavior by changing the intake itself, I think Cobb just pooched their R&D, which is sad.

I've got a maf airflow straightener coming (recommended somewhere back in the bowels of this thread I believe) but I'm starting to think the only way to truly fix the Cobb Intake is to not buy it in the first place

theoretically yes... Make sure to flash down to stage 1 or stock then drive over 100 miles to make sure your CEL doesn't come on because if it comes on during the inspection you will fail. Keep in mind I'm in California and do not have full knowledge of Jersey inspection laws

Does Cobb have any idea when they will be able to use the launch control or even a no lift shift like the subarus have in their ap?

I doubt you will get an answer but go to their website and contact them

Ahh good point. I was just going to flash in the DMV parking lot before the inspection. Well if that works for California inspections, which I hear are a PITA then I should be able to pass NJs.

Don't do this. When you flash you will reset sensors, that need to run 20-60 miles to pass readiness. Just a heads up.
