    I'd like to cut my cat's and throw on some longtubes, but being California that is frowned upon to say the least... so I was wondering if anyone here has a friend that works at a smog shop that might "accidentally" forget to check the cat's and pass my truck with flying colors. Could anyone hook a fellow TW member up? :)

    I wouldn't be worried about it right now, just down the road when I do need to smog, it would be a hassle to take it all off and everything. :eek:

    They don'y have to check for cats because your truck wont pass smog without them. Just keep them on and get a high flow muffler. On a side note your first smog check is required 6 years after the vehicle is purchased new.

    Its really a retarded flawed system, I have a supercharger and the schwarzenegger is worried about my cold air intake cause AFE didn't pay off the CARB like TRD did.

    good thing the elections are coming up soon :)
    Oh nice, do you know if there's any way he could pass a car that doesn't have any cats that might not pass a smog?
