Get it smogged, you should be fine

If you get issues with the visual, just let us know. I'm local to you, we can meet up. I still have my OE one, took it out less than two weeks from buying my RS.

Finally drove the RS enough to get all the systems ready to be smoged.
I’ll be taking it on Tuesday.
you can’t really take the RS out for a calm drive right? Everyone wants to race you LOL.

Yep, that's what you will experience when you drive it in San Diego.

I would say though its more low profile to the 5-0 compared to the JDM cars.

I don't think you would have an issue with the visual for the BOV since they will not go that far on a SMOG place, the State ref on the other hand......

the thing is that the guy doing the smoke already drove the RS when he did the brakes and lights inspection and he heard the BOV LOL., so im thinking that it might be best to take it to a different place to get it smoged.

Across from Church's chicken?

Yeah, bring it to the one at Otay, just be off boost when you are close by just to be safe.

They just need to plug in the OBD port to read, does not need to be on the sniffer or rollers so it wont go psssshhhhhh!

I took it to another smog place and the guy did noticed the Mountune Intercooler, hoses and the Mishimoto Intake, but i was prepaired with the CARB info.
He didnt notice the Turbosmart BOV..... so it passed.
