    Is it possible to put Gen 2 or later catalytic converters on a Gen 1 with no error codes and being able to pass an emissions test. My car does not have the HCAC by pass valve either. Previous own put a pipe in just after the 1st cat, it will not pass PA emissions for York County now. Any thoughts or help?
    Thanks,
    Scott

    In California? The marking on the Gen1 Pri are different than the Gen2 so it would fail inspection. And the mechanic who “modified” your exaust would be exposed to a stiff fine.
    If you could magically make the markings look like OEM then it would pass

    I will rent someone my gen1 cat if your in the sac/sfbay area, you can come to sac and I can put it on your car and you can get it smogged in sacramento, then I will take it back off. I don't want to see even more gen1 in the picknpull, too many already.

    Hey, nimblemotors. Any chance you are still willing to rent out your cat?

    I don't check the forum every day, so if you or anyone else wants to rent my cat, please send me email directly at jack at nimble motor sports dot com. You will have to have the smog check done across the street from my shop so it never leaves my sight, it is the only OEM cat I have, and I have 3 gen1 prius right now. Have straight pipes on them all for actual driving them.

    I noticed they now havel aftermarket ones legal for CA at $1,500.
