I have no cats and I'm going to need the state inspection soon so is there any way to bypass the o2 sensors?

Gotta have your front 2

But here ya go read this, your best bet is the spark plug non foulers in the help section at the auto parts stores

GOOD LUCK, that computer used for inspection can tell if they are there, trust me. I pulled the check engine light bulb and it failed because the computer picked something up!

You will NOT get rid of those codes. The computer will still pick them up

All pulling the bulb out does is make the light not show up. You're still going to have codes, that's what the machine picks up. The spark plug non foulers trick the o2 sensor into thinking its inside of a cat I believe. Thus not throwing any codes in the first place.

It works. As long as they don't sniff your exhaust you'll pass
