Default Pulled over by CHP and recieved a State Ref. ticket

So, I was driving from Sacramento on I-80 and was on my way to Richmond. I was passing through Green Valley and there was a CHP sitting there by the weigh station and he heard my loud exhaust, so he pulled me over.

He was going to write me for the loud exhaust (I have HKS High Power), but also told me to open my hood. I only have an APS CAI and turbo inlet under the hood only. So, he saw the CAI and wrote me a state ref. ticket for the CAI.

So anyway, I have to smog my car and I have to turn my car back to stock (going back to stock exhaust and air box), but the inlet will be a pain and was wondering if the state ref. will notice the inlet? The APS inlet matches my red intake manifold (I drive an STi).

So, will there be a chance that I can pass smog with the APS inlet on? Or give it a shot and see what happens? It's just the inlet I'm worried about pretty much. I think I should pass emissions, but not sure about visual.

Oh yeah, I have a stage 2 protune, is there anything I have to do to my ECU? Just uninstall my AccessPORT? Will my car have to relearn anything?

I'd leave the inlet, but buy a CARB approved intake and have it powder coated to match.

why would a turbo inlet change your emissions? i would leave the inlet on. cant hurt to try right? Can't you fight your way out of the ticket? FL is so lax, you'd like it here.

Haha, It's okay. I don't really want to move to FL just for a CAI ref. ticket =).
