Return modified tacoma parts to stock

I have a 2005 Tacoma with modifications that don't pass the visual inspection when I try to smog it. Apparently there are no C.A.R.B. legal aftermarket air intakes or exhaust headers in california. The actual emissions passed with flying colors, but all aftermarket products need an executive order # from California Air Resources Board. They have a website that you can check to see if your parts are accepted, but it looks as if none of the parts that I need are accepted. I guess that the 2nd generation Tacomas are so new that the long, laborious process of testing these aftermarket products has not been completed to allow their use. Can someone tell me where I can get factory parts for cheap. It sucks because I plan on selling my truck, and it will be less attractive with stock intake and headers.

I wouldn't plan on aftermarket exhaust and an air intake to sell your truck. That doesn't add much value for a lot of people. Also, TRD makes a cold air intake that is CARB legal from what I undestand. The original TRD CAI was not legal but the new version is. You might be able to pick up a stock system from someone out of state that upgraded their system. Good luck!

That's his problem as far as I'm concerned. He'd be pretty pissed if you didn't tell him about it but if he buys it knowing it won't pass visual inspection, that's his issue. He might have a way to get it inspected or make it into a dedicated trail rig.

I have a stock airbox sitting in storage, you can borrow it for smog, but I must have it back cause I will need it when I smog it.

I appreciate the offer, but whatever I change to will have to be permanent, because I want to sell it after it smogs, so that I don't have to smog it again later.
