Default Need help passing smog test in Merced

I need help passing the CA smog test. Is there anyone out there who can help me in the local area. I would be grateful for your help.

I just moved to the area from out of state and the CA smog test is to restrictive for my 02 WRX with Perrin up-pipe, Invidia down-pipe and blitz full cat-back exhaust. I don't want to pay to have the origional exhaust put back on then take the smog test just to have to put my goodies back on.

Someone in that area should be able to help you. Personally I'd suggest at least putting the stock downpipe w/cats back on as you can pass without the uppipe cat (if they aren't too visual and most don't notice the uppipe anyways).

Put the D/P back on (i'm assuming you're running catless right now) and don't go to a main stream Smog station. Go one of those little stations that arn't really offiliated with anyone. Where you think they're most likely just to plug the sniffer in the tail pipe and not really bother with the visual...

Definitely put the cats back on, less the stock uppipe.
