Also worth noting that is now all over their exhaust systems too.
There is no way a stage two catless tune is 50 state. However I would believe a stage two catted setup might actually pass an emissions test, because you are generally driving gently. So then APR can just hold their hands up and say "we never knew zippy used his catless downpipe and tune on road." I don't think that argument will hold much water. I'm also not sure if precedent has been set on this legally yet.
However, if you go to a 2.0L A3 and click on the stage 2 tune, in bright red it says that it's not legal in any state. This is because it says a race DP is required.
A lot of emission laws are confusing to me. In PA some counties require emission testing, others do not. I live in a county that it is required, but 4 miles down the road is a county that does not. When I went for my last SI/EM inspection they scanned my owners card and it stated that an emissions test was not required for my vehicle. I asked why and they told me it was due to the township I lived in.
Good for these goons though. Hopefully this will trickle down to the bros that ruins their trucks by installing 3 foot stacks through the bed of their trucks.

They don't have the resources to go after the many many smaller outfits or people doing stuff at home in their garage.
I've owned a lot of vehicles over the years, and never had an issue other than "gotta get this car hot before the test!" maybe once or twice. But, I can see how it's an issue for poorer folks driving older cars who can't see putting $1500 worth of cats into a $500 clunker they just need to get to their job and back.
Supercar owners: If your housekeeper can afford to register their car in your state, so can you.
We've got an amazing country; don't like the taxes in your state, you can just move. How many other countries have this freedom?
Speaking of dirty, I think diesels will be around a lot longer than 20yrs in light trucks, although I’m sure you’re right for places like California who are willing to legislate them out whether it makes sense in the big picture or not.
I do think some clampdowns on pro motorsport travel emissions are overdue. I follow MotoGP and the way the calendar zigzags is ridiculous.
