Be careful with this one, some car enthusiasts are also strong supporters of the smog program, and the penalties for trying to illegally obtain a smog certification are hefty. These types of discussions are usually better when they are kept out of the public eye...

If you are running catless it is a federal offense, so it doesn't matter where the car is registered or insured. In terms of other modifications I would assume it's a tricky issue. Even if certain mods aren't CHECKED in your home state, it may still be illegal to have them installed, so if a california cop stops you and writes you up for them you may still be liable. Not sure on that one, just some food for thought.

depends on the cop, and to answer the DP question you really cant see the DP unless you look for it over the heat shield and no having an aftermarket muffler you can pass, muffler sections such as DP and catbacks do not need a carb number but rather they advertise b readings, you are free to modify the catback so long as it is within the db allowed in that state

Anybody know about vehicle safety inspection regs? Specifically when registering an out of state vehicle. Looked everywhere but can't find any documentation on it.

For example; can i register a car with no airbags or ABS? A DMV link would be great.

Honestly there would be no way for them to tell that it was ported unless you told them, and I highly doubt it has any significant impact on emissions. You'll be fine.

Here is a scary site to check out.
http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermk...es/amquery.php
It is the Calif. Air Resources Board (CARB) aftermarket parts page. Look in the dropdown box under "LIST EXECUTIVE ORDERS BY DEVICE." If your part is not in that database, it is illegal. Really scary thing is some of the mods listed in there: crankshaft pulley, engine shutoff device (turbo timer), intercooler system, blowby oil separator, etc. Yeah for Arnold!

^^ yea but to actually get cited for all those things you must be driving like an idiot and get pulled over and hassel the cop to the point where he will nail you for everything, in all honesty it all depends, if you attract too much attention to yourself you will get caught, im running full catless system which is loud as F^&$ but i drive the speed limit and cops don't look twice, you got to pay to play

My buddy just got a ticket last Fri. in which he was going 47 in a 50. It even states this on his ticket. Cop said he pulled him over for a modified exhaust and wrote 4 other citations including one for a turbo timer.

It's just a matter of time now when law enforcement officers start pulling people over and checking for EO#'s on aftermarket parts. Can you imagine getting a ticket for a turbo timer?

The problem currently is that people are getting more and more ignorant with what they will do and try. People seem to forget that the smog rule is in effect for our future. Not our present. It sucks, but like was previously stated... Pay to play. They don't tell you not to mod the piss out of your car so that it screams down a road at 200db while braking the speed of light. They just say to do it off the streets.

I personally like the regulations. I've even been among the list of 14 viloations for mods in a single pull over incident. Race cars are for race tracks, and modding is the fun of building a race car. Personally, I think racing should be a little cheaper and / or easier to access so that less people would put it on the streets. In San Diego you can race a police officer at Qualcomm just for the fun of the race. Where is that in OC?? Perhaps I am a little off topic, no?

^i dont see why not as long as you're running clean. best way to pass smog in CA is to return your car to bone stock condition imo...

i didnt know we could get cited for a turbo timer, what kind of bull***** is that, it just keeps the engine running with the key outa of the ignition wtf...gotta have to hide mine now

anybody know if you get pulled by a cop for modified exhaust, and they find that you're catless, what could happen?

could they really impound your car or write you $1500-2000 like some forums/websites claim? or would they just send you off to the ref. station?

I had my mid-pipe replaced back in 03 because my parent's messed-up driveway cracked my stock one. Was working at Subaru at the time and I believe it is catless, but not sure.

Nothing else has been done to the car, everything else is stock - will I need to swap out the new one and get a new stock one put in, or should I be good to go?

I own a 02 RS with a few mods that I am currently taking off and placing the stock parts back on my car. I'm considering trading in my 02 RS in the first quarter of 08. My registration is up for renewal in May. Am I responsible for SMOGing my car if I trade it in before my registration renewal form comes in the mail (Possibly in March)? Yes yes.. I know. Great Question Just playing.
Thanks.
