Arrow Programming options for setting OBD Sensor Status to "Ready"

Hi all,

I've done our some searching of our forum and I am always impressed by the wealth of knowledge our members and vendors have when it comes to just about any topic. I am hoping to pick our collect brains about something I am trying to get figured out during the next 3 months before my car is required to go through Oregon DEQ.

My setup:

- Dinan Race Software (Rev 7 just re-flahsed this week at BMW of Portland)
- AA "race" mid-pipe
- AA exhaust
- AA underdrive pulley and HF air filter

My challenge...OBD Sensor Status for "Catalyst" and "O2 Sensor" are currently showing "UnReady" when I roll through the DEQ self-service station in Oregon. I have talked to Dinan and they say that is to be expected (I expected it myself as well) and I have talked to a few tuners about setting the two status to "Ready" as a tuning option.

My question to the group (if everyone feels comfortable chipping in knowledge) is:

1. Does anyone have experience with any tuners setting the two indicators to "Ready."
2. Are there other options (e.g. code scanner and re-setting/setting) that I should be aware of?

Insights are greatly appreciated.
