TRD intake CA Smog Test

I have a 05 prerunner v6 with a TRD intake and I have a smog test for the first time. I know that this intake is not street legal in CA. This will be my first smog test since I bought the truck in 05. My question is will it pass? I know the obvious answer is no because it is not street legal, but my 99 tacoma had a k&n intake that was not street legal as well and it passed!.Has anyone passed smog in CA with this intake? Anybody know if my 05 will pass? Anybody know how the TRD intake affects smog tests? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My test is due by 8/31/11 so any help,tips,advice before then would be great! Thanks

It will fail the visual test if they actually know what to look for.

Find a friend with same truck & ask to borrow stock intake if you don't have it or just go to a junkyard

You could try that at a pass or don't pay place.

If you are near me you can borrow my intake. Of course I need it back though.

Thx that is really cool of you. Unfortunately I'm in Ventura and I believe that is pretty far from chino hills. I might try searching for a cheap used stock intake on the internet or junkyard

I got my truck smogged today and I passed! I passed with extremely low numbers as well. I got almost all zeros on everything. So why is the TRD intake illegal if it puts out such little emissions? It actually made it better. Thanks for everyone's help! Very appreciated!

Congrats.

The old style TRD intake and many other aftermarket intakes remove the charcoal filter. The charcoal filter traps fumes escaping the intake manifold.

I noticed the new TRD intake is 50 state legal. I also noticed that it has a flat air filter instead of a cone. I cant find the dyno map on it. Do you know which one gets better performance or are they the same?

The new intake makes the engine run lean.

An engine when running can have too much fuel or not enough in the combustion process. Lean means there is too little fuel. Get too lean and you can melt pistons. There has to be a balance of the air/fuel mixture.

I see. They probably had to do that to make it CARB legal, so the first gen probably has better performance
