I didn't unmarry mine and passed a OBD inspection. I have an 05 but an 04 won't be any differant.

It probably depends upon the inspection. Here they only do a visual inspection. They climb under the car and look for a cat if there is one you are good to go. On emissions testing you should be fine also w/ a cat. A lot of places can not do rolling emissions on a 4wd vehicale so you just have it sitting at idle while they check.

NJ just does an obd plug in test. My buddy with passed with an aftermarket turbo, 3" strait pipe and a custom XS engineering tune on his wrx wagon at the state instpection station. As long as they dont do an actual emissions test and just check for codes you are fine as long as you have EM. If they do emissions, as long as you have a cat and you have been running the car recently (warm catalyst hastens light off) you will be fine. EM plu Cat should equal a pass in all but CA.

It varies by state. you should probably tell us what state.

In indiana, you don't have to get emissions done until your car is 5 years old. All they do for your first test is hook up to the obd port and make sure you're not throwing any CELs.
