It depends where you live? If your in Cali like i am , then i would be better off getting something with a carb #, becuase you will need GOOD friends or be lucky that no one cares for visual inspection, to get you to pass smog. Other than that any other state youll be alright, New York is not as strict but they are strict enough.
Believe me, if you just pull up to a smog station and you dont know people, you may get by it or not. Its a case by case ordeal.But if you do get snagged with a dipshit, make shure you have proper carb #'s, or if the intake is not that bad of a problem, then just stick with the oem until you get smogged and then swap it out, youll be good for 2 years until the next one.
I get tired of swapping out down pipes on my other cars, and to make matters worst , the black car in my sig is bone stock, except for high flow cat. And it STILL wouldnt pass smog, but i had some good FRIENDS. So much for high flow cats huh?
then again i dont know where you live.
