I highly doubt it would pass in California, those strict bastards.

Isn't it the seller's responsibility to have the car smogged before you sell?

If your cats are gutted but still in place you should pass the visual inspection. Make sure your car is warmed up before they stick the sniffer in. You may even want to put some 103 unleaded in to help as well. If you have more specific questions try the SCIC forum.

Just to be on the safe side, I would pick up a used OEM downpipe and just swap it in, i'm pretty sure you could find one locally for pretty cheap.
