Default CA smog question?

so currently i'm stage 2 with no cats. helix up and down, tanabe cat-back factory air box. it's time for smog and I'm dreading it... I'll probably just spend a day returning to stock and then go pass it. but, has anyone in california passed smog with a stage 2 or similar setup? I'm just wondering for my own curiosity

i just passed my smog with a stage 2 map.
i put my stock DP back on , and set my WGDC to 0's.
do you have AP or Tactrix's cable?
im not sure on AP due to the fact i dont have one. but on RR i just disabled my o2 CEL's with EGT CEL's and enable the force pass readiness monitors.

*I do not endorse this, as this is only suppose to be used for Off-Road uses.*

Lol...You shouldnt even need to reflash. Just go back to stock DP and putt putt down there and you should be fine. Yea CA, home of the SMOG Gestapo. But at least in SoCal our cars aren't rusting away.
