I would take the JC chip and put the regular one just to pass the inspection.
My car has black smoke, I replaced everything possible to fix it. Even another computer with a Dinan. The only thing that cures the black smoke was putting the regular chip back in.

Well the motor is stock other than a JimC chip, and the car failed emissions horribly. CO was almost 4 times the limit at 403 ppm. I just got the car so I'm not that familiar with it, but does anyone have any ideas for a simple fix? I hear other people passing emissions with the same JimC chip so I doubt it's that. Is there a mixture adjustment or something I can turn down temporarily for the test? The car runs great but it must be running too rich for the tests liking? Thanks for any help!
