Angry HELP!! Cops popped me! Need ref advice..

Installed catback FIVE days ago.. took the silencer out today for a joy ride & got pulled over.. Made me pop the hood and found my BOV.

Oh yeah, I live in California..

I have to go to a referee next week and get a "visual inspection" and a smog..

Does anyone know if I put the BOV recirc pipe on and reinsert the silencer.. will that affect smog? I still have my upipe & downpipe cats...

Or should I just play it safe and put everything back to stock?

a catback will NOT hurt your emissions if you still have stock downpipe.... as long as it passes the DB test california has you should be fine

put your stock BPV valve back on instead of your BOV

im pretty sure it did delete a cat, do what lowrider said with the bpv and throw the stock dp back on, it shouldnt take to long, an hour at the most, im amazed a cop had the balls to ask you to pop your hood, do they pull harleys over for being loud? no. ****ers got nothing better to do then give kids a hard time, we spent good money on our cars we dont need tickets! they should b pulling over civics with straight pipes! goodluck

Got pulled over by CHP bout 2 weeks ago. Made me do the whole thing, roll up the windows, pop the hood, all that junk. Since they don't know **** and just see the big tip out back, I got off with just a exhaust citation (cvc 27151) and not a ref ticket for the turbo, intercooler, etc... Got one years ago in my prelude and I advise putting EVERYTHING back to stock. They will check everything from injectors to computer to exhaust. The state needs the money so they'll try to get it from where ever they can.
