    How about Nevada?

    Does anyone know if NV has smog registration tests that will pass my V's LPE package and Vette Docs AR headers?
    Is it as bad as Cali? Or better?

    Vegas is the only town in Nevada that requires smog testing (Clark County). That is why I have my cars registered and insured in Northern Nevada,, cheaper insurance and no smog test =

    Re: How about Nevada?

    It should pass even in Clark County as long as the OBD II doesn't throw a code...

    They seldom even open the hood on an OBD II car. Just plug in and read the computer. No code = pass...

    ya, when I bought my V2, I had to have it shipped to Vegas from MD,, and the dealership made me pay for Clark County registration.. Had to get smogged,, was sure it wouldnt pass, but like FLTRI said,, no code = pass.. The guy at the smog place had no idea that my car wasnt supposed to be that loud..lol It was a little place on the corner of Pecos and Sunset next to Robertos..

    stock manifolds for now, but the cats are gutted by the previous owner,, at least I am assuming by the smell and how freaking loud the car is.. My Cobra has long tubes and no cats and has a similar stench and audible volume.. Its not the long tubes you have to worry about,, its the cats,,, if you get LTs with high flow cats you shouldnt even have to tune out the CEL/code. LTs without cats are a different story,, you will throw a code right away and that is what they will see with the OBD II tie in..

    Re: How about Nevada?

    I have a buddy with a Z06 that is heavily modified. Heads, cam, headers, X-pipe, CAI, no cats, tune, etc... It's wicked fast, very loud and obvious to even the casual observer that it ain't a stock Corvette.

    He passes every year without any drama at all...

    Do you know where your buddy takes the Z06?
    And yes, I have high flow cats.

    Not specifically, buy I'm sure he just hits a Jiffy Smog near his house, as do I. Every time I smog a car all they do is plug into the OBD port and check to see if the gas cap is in place. 90 seconds later I have the print out. They send the results directly to Carson City, I go home and renew online...

    Like I said earlier, if your not throwing any codes (check engine light not on) you'll be fine...

    Be warned though, Nevada has no state tax, but they make up for it in license plate fees. My V was $1110.00 to register the first time. Ouch...

    Re: How about Nevada?

    I sent my buddy an email just to double check. Here's what he said...

    Me: Do you have any issues getting your smog test done on the Z06 with all the mods? If so, how do you get around it???

    Reply: No issues. It passed every time. That was one of the conditions I imposed when I had the mod's done. Usually Gil (who did my tuning) can force the engine parameters enough to make it work. I think the biggest problems occur with very aggressive cams.

    My V has the redline motorsports stage 4 treatment with a moderately aggressive cam and I passed smog,,, dont remember the exact cam specs,, somewhere in the .630/.660 range.. She was loping pretty good at the smog place, so I was worried..lol The guy knew absolutely nothing about the CTS-V..
