    smog

    Sup guys, i got a 03 audi a4 quattro and i know it being a awd when it gets smog they dont run the car for emissions. So my question is, will the car pass if i delete my cat and put a straight down pipe on and clear the check engine code before i take it to smog?

    No it won't as they do a visual inspection and check readiness on your computer.

    There is an emissions test done(TSI) just not on the dyno being its awd it wont pass emissions it wont pass visual inspections and it wont pass the functional due to the monitors not being set(like URQ said) from you erasing the CEL

    need to put about 50 miles on the car for it to be able to be smogged after you clear the codes. By then you will likely have the CEL again.

    Delete your 02's or Tune them out... Any decent Tuner can tune out your 02's so they dont trip a code.
