    you probably wouldnt get pulled over specifically for THAT, but it could be another violation if you get popped for something else. Your other trouble would be passing smog..

    No smog yet no need for it right now, but if you ever smog it switch the intake with the oem one.

    if its CA legal, do it on - if its not CA legal, i dont do it.

    But if you did, you would want to put the OEM back on before you attempted to smog it..

    I have AFE / TRD and it is CA legal. All you need is the sticker that has the CARB number. Or you can "be creative" on that, I plead the 5th....

    Mods are legal and DON NOT VOID WARRANTY so happy modding.

    i got pulled over for my exhaust when it was really my CAI. told the cop it said legal on it and just kept saying that. he couldnt give me a ticket so he said.. your license plates lights are out.. little bitch. I was just cruising up the street and his bored ass had to bust a bitch and he made it all elaborate also.. like a u turn burn out..
