It should, yes
Not sure if you would know the answer to this one either Mike, that should allow me to pass emissions in that case correct? From my forum searching it will set it to not ready which will allow me to go through emissions providing everything else is ready?
not the mike you were hoping for, but, no it will not make you pass emissions. This just clears the code so you don't have it on your dash. The monitor will still fail.
Thank you! My state allows for one not ready monitor. I was under the impression MHD sets it to not ready.
Correct, will still be not ready. But if your state allows one monitor to be "not ready" you should be fine! Unless they do a visual inspection too.
They do do the visual, but as long as you have a high flow and can see a cat they pass it! So I'll be all set.

Car sounds good. I am glad I came across this thread. The VRSF catted downpipe is what I was thinking about getting.

I am just a tad past my inspection date, 7/18. I should probably get that done before it is installed next week.

Definitely get inspected before installing the DP... then you'll have the entire year before you have to swap it.

We've been having pretty good success with the current catted version but we still have a few in stock so it's looking like the end of Q2.

Our new offerings for the F20/F30 will feature a Euro6 standard cat similar to other brands mentioned without the BMW tax

Hey Tiago question ,

Here is the scenario :

N55+BM3+Stage1/2+Your current catted downpipe


Will this set up trigger CEL?

Or wait for the new catted version already mentioned here?

Thanks in advance.

I want the new VRSF hi flow cat downpipe, that will not trigger a CEL.(Even though I have MHD and can turn it off)

Tiago at VRSF, when can I give you my money for this new high flow cat for the N55 PWG???????

So with this new catted version, will allow to have it "ready" (o2 sensor/monitor) after the proper cycle, in case any Inspection/Verification ?

Theoretically yes if you flash back to stock before inspection.
