Having a modded car in cali is just rough as hell man. I got sent to the ref for my stock exhaust. Also had an srt 4. They don't have mufflers. Fucking ref walked me into the garage and told me to leave. Apparently cops were sending srt4s in left and right. Got lucky. I had mopar stage three, intercooler and mbcHa, just mentioned the CA hood popping. Was at HIN (iirc) in San Jose, maybe 1999, and my buddy was running his Neon ACR on ITBs. Cop asked to pop his hood, he said “it’s broken”. Cop reaches in <pop> “ahh looks like I fixed it.” Hits the motor with flashlight and goes “well shit, what we got here?!?” Impounded. Another friend had a junked SSB racer he put ass end into the wall at Sears Point. We had a couple motor swap parties one week.
Also depends on what you drive. A lowered civic is going to get looked at harder than a 600HP Kia, because Kia.. At least out here.F all that. I had a catless car years ago and I took it to get inspected. It passed the smog test but the inspector(white guy) failed it on the visual and commented that it was too loud. I just told him I bought it like that. I went home and spent a few hours trying to get the stock cats bolted up to my headers w/out it leaking. I took it back to the same damn place for the re-inspection. What do you know, the cop wasn't there. This not white guy just asked me if I put cats on it and gave me a sticker. He didn't even look at the car lmao
Lol, yea I had another one with all the smog stuff deleted under the hood and long tube headers. I was getting worried bc the techs were looking under the hood for what seemed like 10 minutes. PASS....Also depends on what you drive. A lowered civic is going to get looked at harder than a 600HP Kia, because Kia.. At least out here.
Florida was upset with the rampant fraud and a ton of other reasons. And they did away with emissions all together. Iirc it was early or mid 90'sThat’s how you could claim a “street car” lol
Lol, I’m well versed in the FL dude bro dude bro dude.Florida was upset with the rampant fraud and a ton of other reasons. And they did away with emissions all together. Iirc it was early or mid 90's
Everyone is catless there. It's great but pollution is a real thing. Then there's cars that just shouldn't be on the road either due to gross hp builds or due to cars needing a ton of repairs.
I knew a guy that dailied a 800hp LS1 swapped rx7. That's just crazy
