I saw a pic of a guy with an AEM intake that was covered by a metal plate. The plate actuallykinda made it blend in and look more stock. Perhaps with the right tune, maybe a more hidden, blended in approach would get me through it?
It's not that big a deal and you limp your car over for the smog and then you limp it back home. It's once every two years and it is part of Cali. Don't worry do it, you won't be sorry
