Yes, in my case I passed NY inspection with the ESS tune. You pass with one stored code, fail with two. The tech plugged it into the DMV system, and only one stored fault code was found, so the system issued the new sticker.

That was with the ESS tune, SC, Dinan mid-pipe, and Eisenmann Race. Please note, the second you pull into the dealership or any state inspection facility they'll know what is going on when you run a full exhaust. Although the DMV system can be "fooled", a visual inspection will give you an automatic no-go. Besides the sound and smell is a dead giveaway.

So basically the tune in regards to passing the state inspection is just the last box that gets checked.
The place where my car gets inspected, they dont give two shits about smell or a visual inspection.
Still would like to know if BPM tune allows ny inspection to pass.
