Subscribed for the Stage 2 California Legal Basic Kit

Your basic kit must be at a Minimum like UKs Subaru STI 330s (1/2 second quicker with 325bhp and 344lb ft of torque). I don't know what that car has but it's running on the same US 2.5 liter engine.

As a side note,
Shooting for 330 WHP mark is the equivalent of 390 BHP (when using the 15% power loss.. though I think Subaru's AWD drivetrain loss is more like 20%+)

If I can pass that test I assure you you'll never have a problem passing smog.

One of the reasons I want to create a kit is so I wouldn't have to take anything off and put it back on for smog tests. I'm a busy man and swapping parts is a waste time.
I hear ya and that would be awesome to have some sort of E.O. that says my exhaust is ok. But from what I have researched in California, I don't think that is even a possibility. I believe the law says that any change to the stock cats is illegal. However, if you know away around that (i.e. an executive order) I would be very interested as I don't want to go through that hassle either. Looking forward to what you come up with.

I was actually thinking about modifying the stock heat shield on the second cat and bolting it up to make it look like there was another bump there. Curious if anyone has tried that. I agree, if the car passes the sniff test that is all that should matter. It makes no sense at all. CA is a joke as far as smog goes.
