Unhappy

Mod parts for the engine must be CARB (Cal. Air Resource Board) approved. Depends on the smog tech if he looks, or cares.

Actually, headlights (bulbs) and all light bulbs must be DOT (Dept. Of Transportaion) approved for the highway.

ie: Those 'Blue' headlight bulbs have NOT been approved yet to replace the factory spec bulbs. So a bored cop can ticket you.

We get smogged every 2 years in CT also.

You have to move to some hick state like Iowa or somewhere where they all drive pickup trucks and use chewing tobacco. Those are the places where there are no emission laws.

I think all of those items are legal. They look for stuff UNDER the hood. Cold air intakes that look aftermarket is something they will deffinately look at.

EGR is a must. All vacuum lines in place, and not plugged.

If you change things, try to make it look really good, like for a car show. Cap off unused vacuum ports, no loose wire connectors, hoses etc.

A GOOD smog tech will know what he's looking at/for. A lazy or stupid one won't.

It's a $10k fine for the shop if the tech gets caught cheating.
The CARB does undercover sting operations everyday, somewhere in the state.
