    thanx little slow on the lingo, my bad....

    the cel was on but i changed two o2 sensors and it went off but wen i got a diagnostics done it still showed something on the cars computer wasnt right and was sending negative feedback to it. i have a friend who does tunes and told me he could put the vics map back to stock or go in and manually tell the computer there is nothing wrong with it and that the diagnostics wouldnt be able to detect it.

    im not sure if i will do it but i have ben giving it careful consideration...wat do u think

    Is the car stock or modified? What are the modifications? If you are to pass smog you need to have all sensors report "ready."

    See this FAQ: Exhaust FAQ: Read if you are thinking of buying one! - NASIOC and figure out what you have deleted that is causing "not ready" responses. It also has info on how to fix the issues.

    Grats on the pass!

    I'm keeping all stock parts in storage for when the time comes.

    This brings up a good question in mind, do you think I could get away with an STI turbo like a vf-39 in my car?

    It would seem like a painfull mess to swap out a turbo then swap back after smog.

    People do pass with VF39s. Keep your stock exhaust and intake stuff and have a map ready to run the car (don't know your other mods etc.) plus if there are shiny parts around they better have a CARB sticker on them.

    Amador County, CA - No Smog Required to Register

    I live in Amador County (next to Sacramento) and this county does not require smog certs unless you sell your car. I live here so it's easy for me, but I wonder if you get a PO Box here and use it as your address if it will allow you to bypass smog as well.

    Unless you have the associated BAR sticker (if it's available) they should fail you if they follow the book exactly. I bet most people wouldn't but it is illegal without a BAR sticker. I know they're especially stringent in SoCal though. Check the manufacturer website for any information about the BAR sticker, if they got it legalized for CA they should put that info front and center.

    QUESTION

    If i have the full exhaust system i.e DP UP TB and all others, will that alone be enough to fail emissions? Im military and need to pass emisions to get registered on base. Also the car will have others mods (i.e Intake,FP,bigger TMIC,ECU tune/flash,plugs/wires just to name a few) will that setup alone make me fail hands down? This might be a stupid question but i want to have the car pass with no chance of failing. Any help would be appreciated

    That setup is not legal for a road car anywhere in the US.

    What kind of wires will the car have? The Subarus do not use spark plug wires. Is this another car brand? It doesn't matter as far as emissions, I'm just curious.

    sorry dont know much bout the sub world yet still learning. Was just hoping for upgraded ignition/fuel system. Didnt know if all these factors combined would throw off emissions. As far as road legal what exactly isnt legal about that setup?
