As far as the test, I pass with flying colours on two of the three categories. I failed miserably on the hydrocarbon levels. producing more than double the allowed limit. (0.80 being the most allowed, and my car putting down 1.85). I have replaced the catalytic converter, flex pipe, muffler, full tune up, pulled the throttle body off and cleaned completely, as well as as much of the intake manifold that i could reach without taking if off.

As far as where the temp. guage is when fully warmed up, depends on the temp. outside. winter time, it never passes a quarter of the way between cold and normal. In the summer, if i idle too long, it will begin to over heat. Would my ECTS make me fail emissions? Cause I'm pretty sure thats the reason behind the overheating part.
