Turbos vs The Law

How do all of you out there with Turbos deal with passing the emission regulations in your particular state?

If your state does require inspections, as long as you have a cat somewhere in the line you should pass, unless you're dealing with California's CARB testing...in which case no aftermarket turbo will ever be certified.

I've moved from missouri to kansas (kansas city area) , in missouri I would pay a few bucks more (10 or so) and they wont even look at the car. Got some good friends.

In kansas they check vin number against title and call it done, nothing else
