Failed emmisions test

New law I guess. I have a 5" exhaust and failed my catalyst test for tampering. Found out early 99's had them along with later six speeds.

Anybody have suggestions on which route to take? Magnaflow has an aftermarket 5" for about $260.

I believe the stock exhaust was a 3" and I would need 2 5" to 3" reducers and unions to run a stocker. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Failed emmisions test

Look under the hood on the valve cover or hood and see if it says "CATALYST" or "NON-CATALYST". It shouldn't need or have had a cat origanilly if it says "NON-CATALYST".

Re: Failed emmisions test

If the sticker is gone I'd find out thru a vin check to see if there was a cat installed thru the factory then go from there. Somebody will let you know how to check the vin, can't remember right now. I bought mine new so I know what came on it, I know what I put on it too..

Re: Failed emmisions test

His computer brought up that early 99's (before 12/98) need a cat. I've done some research and believe he is right. One more thing to bite an early 99 owner in the rear.

I doubt anyone has put a cat on yet but I'm afraid it's going to become mote common in the future for those who had one from the factory. If anyone has a spare one lying around PM me.

I have an early 99 with a ZF6 and it has a build date of 2/98 and it has a cat on it but my 99.5 and 2000 do not have a cat.

Re: Failed emmisions test

E99's had cats....stick and auto. The 01, 02 and 03 275hp six speeds did aswell. However, I did see a 02 275 hp six speed that did not have one installed when it was brand new...It was a mexican built truck, I guess they forgot to install it.
