Default Joe Z and Emissions Testing in Ontario, Canada

Hi All,
I've read some threads where it's stated that the Joe Z will not affect the emissions testing, despite removing the secondary cats. Can anyone confirm this for Ontario, Canada? I'm not sure how emissions testing varies across boarders. I'm planning on installing my Joe Z this month, and trying to decide whether I should keep my stock exhaust or not.
Thanks,
R

It should not be an issue as Ontario Drive clean is a OBD2 based readiness system. They will only perform a quick visual inspection and not detect missing CAT's.......unless you throw a check engine light right before the testing...it will have no impact.

And with that... I always recommend to keep your oem exhaust...

You just never know when you might need it..
