Well today is the day of reckoning. Some time later today I will take my Bird in to get smog tested. Mind you I live in California. I've removed my third cat, installed roller rockers, and slightly altered the mechanical specs of the engine (slightly different bore & CR). If this car passes, it will finally put to rest and give an answer to the question, "If I remove the third cat, will I still pass emissions testing?"

i answered that question 2 years ago when i had the 3rd cat removed and a flowmaster dual exhaust. with the car very very warmed up it barely passed;)

but you do have engine mods and that will make it even more difficult to pass

3 cats? We don't need no stinkin' 3 cats!

The results are in.

HC (PPM)
15 mph: MAX = 50, AVERAGE=9, MEASURED=3
25 mph: MAX = 34, AVERAGE=7, MEASURED=2

CO (%)
15 mph: MAX=0.48, AVERAGE=0.02, MEASURED=0.00
25 mph: MAX=0.45, AVERAGE=0.03, MEASURED=0.00

NO (PPM)
15 mph: MAX=414, AVERAGE=57, MEASURED=0
25 mph: MAX=701, AVERAGE=50, MEASURED=22

Porkchop, if you did it years ago why haven't you ever answered these people that ask?!?
