Re: movin to cali. want to keep my lude. help

if that's all you have, you can slip by some smog stations. they're supposed to look for e.o. numbers on aftermarket parts. not all of them look for it though, but the state is cracking down on stations that are just passing people without doing a proper inspection. btw, two parts to the inspection: emissions test, and a visual to see if anything's been tampered with.

fyi, the law here in cali for smog control is that the aftermarket part(s) must perform at or better than factory specs. if they do, the manufacturer can apply for an exemption order and they'll get a number if they pass. some manufacturers put the e.o. number on a sticker, some stamp it on to the part. now, that said, there is also a catch-all in the vehicle code here that says any modifications to the vehicle is illegal.

Re: movin to cali. want to keep my lude. help

in a way yes. it also depends on the cop behind you. some of them don't care, some of them will pull you over for a loud exhaust. if you don't plan on getting cali plates, you won't have to deal with the smog stations here though.

He's righ, there are also a lot of people with exhausts that are very load and don't get pulled over, they really don't do much. I know people who have gotten pulled over for exhaust most just got fix it tickets. I say most because one ran a light and then the cop just got him for everything he could.
