CA sucks balls

what the hell am i going to do, the only way i can turbo my car is to regester it in oregon under my grandparents address, but i doubt they will go for it, i want a turbo sooooooo bad, the JR supercharger seems cool and it is CARB legal, but the reviews say the turbo is much better for getting the power i want. what am i to do?

thanks for listining to my thoughts.lol

Yup, CA's smog regulations are one of the strictest in the States.

You think smog regulation is a bitch? Try defending yourself with a gun OH no wait you cant its not legall to use guns in CA, only criminals need guns. So if something happens please call the cops so 20 minutes later the can show up and draw a chalk line around your cropse.

Hehe, yeah CA is off in its own world. You CAN run a turbo with a cat, of course, but you might go broke tuning it to pass emissions. Or maybe not. I don't know exactly what CA law says - will they nail you for any mods to the emissions systems, even if you can pass the emissions test? That would suck.

Or you could make friends with a good lawyer and file for a CARB exemption.

Good luck.
