incorrect.... the shop will be informed that the vehicle is equiped with TWC or "Three-way-cats" according to the catalyst sticker (if they even look at it) unless they look it up in an emissions book or do an underside visual inspection it will pass. Also they are more than likely only going to do a "plug and run" obd2 test, they will hook a data link cable to the obd2 port on the passenger side and check the back for visible smoke, as long as you haven't disconnected you battery lately you'll do fine. Also take it to some hole in the wall smog station, any busy jiffy smog or whatever and the kid who smogs it likely wont give it a second look.
