mrbell, It doesn't matter what Michigan thinks. It'* a FEDERAL law. Whether you have emissions or not. I don't have emissions in Oregon, but it'* still against FEDERAL Law to run without a Cat in any state of the union. Based on EPA regulations.

If you get caught without one, and someone wants to toss a book at you, the fines are a minimum of $2500. They start at $10k for the second offense.

We may not have mandatory testing, but "Michigan people" do care, and it'* a lot more than just whether or not you get caught.

common guys of course we all know its illegal, and by not using one u take the risk...so if thats what he wants then let him do it, im not saying its right or wrong, but if he wants to do it then he knows the consequences...u guys dont have to keep badgering him he knows the consequences and its up to him

What he chooses to do for himself is one thing. What is recommended to others for them to follow is quite different.
