thanks a whole lot for your input. That bit of info makes me feel a lot better. I guess I don't have anything really to worry about then. Would you suggest I have the cat checked nontheless?
I'm still a bit worried about passing the smog inspection in CA.
Would you know anything about how federal version cars do on that test as compared to CA versions? I guess there has to be a difference otherwise they would not go to the lenght and have the emission control system modified??
