Question Emission Test Question


I recently found out that my 97 Civic EX has a Exhaust Manifold leak.

I need to get an emmision test and am worried that this leak will effect the result.
Will it affect the results?

And can any one give me any short term solutions?

Was hoping to wait till I could get a y8 header to replace...

Thnxs in advance

Thnxs for the replies.

szuberi, would the gasket make noise if it was leaking?

I'm gonna open it up tomorrow (thurs) and check out what I can see....
Its weird though, when accelerating, my car sounds like its burppin or something...

Just don't want to pay the 1200 Honda quoted me for a new one if it is a problem
