Dinan Stage II + HFC X-pipe and passes emissions!

Today I had my local dealer run an emission test on my M3 just to see it it would pass with an Encore x-pipe (HFC) and Dinan Stage II. Well, it passed. Good news for me since I thought I'd have to go through the ass-pain of re-installing my OEM pipes and have the Dinan Stage Ii converted back to stage I every two years to pass emissions. So now I have the answer. I can leave it as is and mass emissions. I'm in New Mexico so of course it might not pass in another state but good to go here. :d rink:

That's what it advertises. So I'm guessing it's 200 cell cats.

Is there anyway you can post the results? like how much Co2 and stuff? I think that would be a VERY helpful benchmark.

Does your state have a visual inspection of the emissions equipment? If so, you may fail even if it passes the sniffer.
