CA Emmisions Thread

Hey guys! Just had my first Smog Check done sine moving out here and failed the Visual Inspection. I have an Injen CAI so I did a closed loop on one of my sensors so I wouldn't trip the CEL.

Other than putting in the stock airbox, anyone run into this problem and passed Smog Check? My old Airbox is somewhere in Connecticut so I'd basically have to find someone selling one (which they are on the buy/sell forums).

Visual check? Show him a CARB EO number. I think they have it exempt, or pending. I'll see if I can find anything.[/b]
Injen sent me the CARB sticker for my intake... you have to show them proof of purchase and they'll send it to you
so if your car has a CEL - will it pass smog?

i haven't hooked my MAFCi Injen eliminator back up - and it's throwing a code (I think 1174)
they won't even look at it in Cali if it has a CEL. if it doesn't have a CEL on, they do the test and scan the computer as it needs a certain # of miles after the reset or they will fail it as well.

dang, well i'm putting my MAFci back on this week then...
