Default Resonator Removed. Will It Pass Smog?

I recently removed my resonator from the max. Will it still pass smog check? I have a nismo cold air intake on it thinking of putting it back before I go get it done and put it back afterwards. Anyone know if it would pass? Thanks

If it was just resonator, and not the 3rd downstream Catalytic that wasremoved it should pass.

Resonator only deadens noise it doesn't have anything to do with emissions, if it was cats then that's a different story, hope that helps to clear things up

It will pass without the resonator, although you may not like the sound. My car also passed in Colorado every time after removing the 3rd cat that's located in the y-pipe. I gutted it first (made zero difference in my 1/4mi time.) then I just got a new Y-pipe (Cattman) without the cat, car passed without a problem..... As long as they don't do a visual.

Wow thanks for the great info. I like the sound it gave it once I removed the resonator. And I really doubt they will do a visual inspection. Been going to this guy for awhile but you know how it is. They enforce rules and regulations on them and they have no other option but to do it on there customers.
