Wtf??? There is no way you can have whatever mods you want as long as you have an OEM cat. CA is *the* strictest state. I see the only noticeable mod you have is a header. Easily covered with a heat shield. Or, better yet, you installed it after you got inspected. This guy is asking to go turbo.
To the OP, there is no way in hell you can *legally* turbo your car in CA. You have to "know someone" at a smog check. My advice...move to OR where they just have an OBDII scan, hah.

Keep all stock parts.
Install for inspection, Install STOCK TUNE.
After Inspection RE-Install Turbo, ReFlash TUNE.
Drive and have fun.....
Pain in the ass but it works.
