Regarding option 3. California has a list of requirements to make a replacement converter. It is more difficult than someone would like. For that reason, I am not sure what the possibility will be for us to offer one.
The converter itself would be 50 state legal. Magnaflow shows it being legal in California. I am thinking it would pass the obd-2 and smog test in California. It has the required stampings on the converter.
The visual inspection would be the concern. If the inspector knows how the SVTF looks like, they may not pass the visual inspection. The reason being even though the factory o2 sensors are in a bad location from the factory, I do not believe California will allow them to be placed in a different location. That and they might not like the pipe we offer only has one converter vs two like the factory one.
