If that's the only thing keeping you from passing inspection. sure. (if the map your loading has a CEL fix for what's setting it off.)

an alternate option is get your car registered in a state that doesn't have emissions testing. lol

Another tuning option is ROMraider, it's basically free. Just get a $75 tactrix cable and a laptop. You'll need to get ECU Flash, it's free. I have a stage 2 tune for the 03 I can send to you. It'll get you to pass but you need to get an actual tune.

well, the AP will disable the emission codes so is there some reason you can't wait till they send you the right one?

This is the website that explains Massachusetts inspections. I would take note to the part that if you reset your computer, you should wake about a week before you get it inspected. I only say that because I didn't, and failed once.

No, but I am assuming they're sending you the right one?

I recently had to have my emissions tested. I have an Accessport as well. It got rid of my CEL light. I had no problems passing CT emissions.

Depends on what the CEL is for..........could be for the intake or a million other things.What is the DTC?

Diagnostic Trouble Code. It's also known as a Check Engine Light code.
