Luckily, my 1995 Audi 90 just passed the emissions  test an hour ago.  But, there is something that I just realized  and could spell emissions test problems for people around the  country.  Because a number of refineries were knocked out after  the hurricanes in the gulf. the EPA relaxed the gasoline blend  distribution restrictions for parts of the country.  I do not know  what the sensitivity of the emissions testing equipment is, but, it may  be that if a particular region of the country is not getting the blend  for which the machines are calibrated, one may see anomalies in the  results.
  Just a thought and a theory.

My son got a replacement catalytic converter from Summit Racing for his 87 
5ktq. I believe it cost around $130. They have a universal series of 
converters from which you try to match the dimensions of the existing 
converter. A  local shop mounted it for him. They did a pretty good job.
