Yes, it's true. Not that it stops anyone here though. You'll need to find a smog tech that will look at a DET and see a DE. AFAIK there's no problem getting a DET to pass emissions, it's the visual inspection you have to worry about.

and for what it is worth... it only takes about a day to make a DET a DE and if you really want boost that is what you might have to do..

that won't exactly work on those road block sorta emission tests (roadside tests?) that I heard the smog-nazi's employ...

take your chance =)

I hate all of you! :D We have to get on that damn treadmill here and pass like three different tests. Its horrible, they're like the gestapo. And Im in Missouri! I can understand why California has tight regulations because there are millions and millions of people. But Missouri? Come on... Sorry to go on a rant, but....:D

Im never gonna move from south Cali even thogh we have all the emissions and smog tests. I mean come on, why can American Muscle Gas Guzzler cars pass but us imports can't? It sucks. All of us Californians should start a petition about making no smog or emissions tests. Whos with me?

Yeah the DET is illegal in CA, but so is nearly every mod you can do to an SE-R. *any* modifcation is illegal unless it's CARB-certified, and most mods for our cars aren't.

So just like what you'd have to do even with just a couple bolt-ons, you have to find a smog place that will overlook the visual inspection, and just make sure your car can pass smog out the tailpipe, which it will in most cases if it's tuned up. Even the DET will pass CA smog out the tailpipe if it's in good condition.

True, anything is illegal thats modded.

But it's just like those retarded "FBI WARNING" screens on rented videos. They say its illegal to record them but everyone does it and no one cares, just like alot of people get paid under the table at like restaurants and don't pay taxes. All illegal, but hard to prove and almost never enforced.
