in your case, since NJ has similar emissions test to MA, where they do visual inspection and plug it into the obdII port, then yes, it will pass for you

i didn't know california did that. in MA and other east coast states, they simply hook up the cars obdii port to a state inspection machine and the machine determines whether it passes or not. mine passed this test. not sure what else to tell you.
