Turbo Duratec in Cali?

Does anyone have a duratec that is turbocharged in california?

If so, how did you get pass the emissions test?

I am debating in my own mind (I have been for months now) whether to go turbo or stay N/A. The reason that is most compelling me to stay N/A is the emissions testing.

But, N/A cars require a bit more work, and a bit more money to make power that is relatively close to what a turbocharger can put out, which is why I am looking at turbo as the best bang for the buck.

Sure there are ways to get around it.. Capping lines or something... However there are those shops around that for a little extra $$$ they will pass ya. Just had a friend of mine go through that on his Acura... Cost a bit to do though.

It won't pass emissions "at least visually" since the primary cat is removed. However CA does not require smogging until after 5 years of ownership. So technically you can install a turbo and remove it for inspection in 2010.
