Put the stock exhaust back on and the stock intercooler i am sure you have EGR valve. PCV valve. Evap canister. O2 sensor. cataytic converter these are some of the parts that referee gone check when he did the visual inspection you can check your underhood emission label where everything suppose to be

you might as well pay for the fine. happend to me about 2 months ago. You will NOT pass visual inspection and you will be paying more just going to a state referee. Just wait till the mail comes and hopefully the "without correction" fee will be cheap. I got the EXACT ticket as you and my ticket was only 300. That was WITH tinted windows also.

BTW: how many supras are here in sac, seems like they are popping up everywhere. pics?

It seems like supras have populated sac recently. I used to never see them, and now I see them once a week. My boyfriend wasgoing on how my car isn't so rare anymore because of it. =T Still beats seeing Zs everyday driven by more chicks than guys.

getting pulled over and ticketed for exhaust is bullshit.

my friend runs a test only station and he knows the laws, anything after the cat is legal in california regardless of a carb# or not as long as it's not exceeding 96db. they are using something that is actually legal to screw us over.

i'm going to get a copy of that paperwork regarding code on exhaust and post it, i'm tired of hearing about this shit. hell i'm going to keep it in my car with me.

its easy, ask one of your friends if you can put your car in his name, fill the paper work out, have dmv stamp it. set up a court date, show the judge you sold it. hell give you a 10$ fine, and then reverse the paper work. lol. screw the state ref.

Do you have a silencer for the carbon TI? If it lowers the sound more than 95 db. it should pass the noise limit test. No where in the section code does it say you must have a OEM exhaust installed on the vehicle.

lol scan and share plz :p...

on my old supra, when i had a front mount, i had a orignal scan of a greddy turbo kit carb eo number, which i photochoped.. to match the intercooler number.. and i sticked it on one of my piping... im pretty sure all you guys with front mount can probably use something like that. let me go home and try to find it again. you just gota go print it out on some high quality sticker paper and than seal the top, so the ink doesnt come off from the heat.... than just stick it on :p....... next time cop pulls you over..just point and say look its carb eo lol......
