If your OBD scan tool says that the readiness is "incomplete" then you wont pass. No easy way around it except to swap the cats in, flash your stock tune back and have the car inspected. I was in this very same dilemma but I sold the car before hand. I was actually going to have a set of vband clamps installed on the cats and the x-pipe to make swapping them on and off easier. The link below is where I got the idea from.

Looks way cleaner with vbands

ive searched a lot and some guys say theyve passed with catless + tune but i dont know how that would be.
anyone have experience with this in ny? is there any way around this other than removing xpipe and flashing back to stock?
Swap back cause you'll never pass. The anti foul spacer things don't work. I'm done with the shenanigans and this myself. I'm throwing my cats back on, taking the test pipe off, and leaving it at that. The stress every two years in NYC is annoying. Lol I'm over it.

Damn, this is really disappointing as I was looking to get test pipes, but I don't really want to deal with this NY emissions testing bs.

Want to buy mine? I need an inspection by October I believe and I'll be taking mine off and putting my cats back on. I'm sick of this shit every two years.... it was fun while it lasted

Not sure how you guys are not passing. It must be the tune you are using that does not set the emissions system correctly.

yep. Stock tune with Cats passes no problem. 15 minutes on a computer fixes this. Ask me how I know.

Wait - I am so confused.

1. HFC xpipe + no ESS tune = fail inspection?
2. Catless xpipe + ESS tune = pass inspection?
3. HFC xpipe + ESS tune = pass inspection?

Can someone confirm?

Can ESS tune can work with any HFC or catless xpipe?

The ESS tune disables two o2 sensors which will always make you fail. You should pass with hfc and stock ecu
