    bought a bugeye, but failed smog test-need help

    Hey guys,

    I bought a 02 WRX a year back and now it is due for a smog test. I took it into the shop today, and it passed everything except for the "Other Emission Related Components" category.

    The guy said my SPT Air Filter was illegal, which I know it's not. But he said he couldn't do anything about it unless he saw a number for the part or if I replaced it. What I think he means is that he needs to see a EO# for the part. The intake was already on the car when I bought it, and I couldn't find the CARB sticker anywhere.

    Since I'm getting pretty close to the deadline to submit certification of a clean car, I called a couple dealerships in the area to get a sticker, who told me to call Subaru. I saw on other websites that Subaru will ship you one for free no problem, but the woman I talked to at Subaru had no idea what I was talking about and told me she'll get back to me later on it.

    So I was wondering if anyone has the EO# or the number on their CARB sticker so that I could get this car cleared? Or is there anything else I can do to prove to the smog testers to prove that its legal? Thanks for the help

    this SPT intake ?

    http://www.driveperformance.subaru.c...2/upgrades.asp


    quote from www.subaruproparts:
    SPT High Flow Air Intake

    Constructed of 319 die cast aluminum and manufactured to ensure the smoothest high flowing bends, each intake kit includes a silicone reinforced boot, anti-vibration mounting system, stainless steel T bolt clamps, and an SPT 4 layer cotton filter with built-in velocity stack for smooth air flow (replacements are available seperately on this site). They are finished in gray textured powdercoat finish for longevity, and are CARB certified and 50 state emissions legal.
