He has high flow cats, may still be throwing codes
Not sure if CT is different from OH, but dont you have the "spend $XXX amount" and get a waiver (read: pass)? Also, does CT give you the option to take the sniffer/roller test if all the readiness monitors arent ready yet? If so, just take the roller test and pass or fail. If you fail, make up receipts for work done, ie fuel pump, injectors, etc and get the passing waiver.
Edit: just looked and it looks like its $787 for the Cost Waiver. Wow, and I felt bad about OH and $300!

He had a stored code that caused him to fail. He is going to try again with the code wiped out and no CEL.

Oh, and we are plug in test only as well, but lots of places do visual checks for cats.
Chris, check the knowledgebase. There's a thread out there regarding the rear O2 sensors, Kook's headers and passing emissions.
Here's the link:

I've known a few guys here in Arizona (OBD-II plug-in only) that have passed with headers on stock blocks, stock blocks with blowers, and strokers (with and without cats) by using the aint-fouler & steel wool (grade 3) method. It's a lot of trial and error though with getting the right amount of wool in there. If he resets the CEL, a quick drive cycle can put them back in the ready - LINK. Turning the key to the on position for 10 seconds will tell if the vehicle is ready for emissions or not. After the 10 seconds, the CEL will flash and ding if it's not ready. We worked off of richierev's thread that he mentioned above: Emissions, Kooks LTs, Anti-Foulers, & O2 Sensors Revisited

I just got off the phone with Chris. Prior to the 440 the engine was SC'd with the Kook's headers and anti-foulers were in play. The car passed emissions last year. CT has changed the software for emissions which is more stringent. The test now looks for pending or stored codes that do not throw a CEL. One thing to try, is to change out the steel wool with fresh/clean material. Due to exhaust heat the steel wool in the anti-foulers will breakdown over time.
Side Note: the Mopar 6.1 TCM creates an OEM pending code which may cause a failure at emissions in CT.
