exhaust is allowed for smog in CA, its the noise that creates an issue

I don't fully understand what you just said, but it shouldn't be louder except under high load with the same exhaust and a small turbo. I would almost think it would be quieter at cruise.

To each his own. If you want to make big power or be super fast; aint happenin' with the greddy kit. You want a big boost in TQ and more fun at the wheel, go for it.

i meant using an aftermarket exhaust as opposed to a stock exhaust. the aftermarket is gonna be louder but you can legally pass smog with an aftermarket exhaust. now if i cop were to pull you over for your exhaust it would be for a noise pollution violation, not for smog purposes. sorry if that didnt make sense.

if you want to stay legal and get a good bump in hp go with greddy. i wouldnt recommend putting more power than that in a fwd car anyway lol

Greddy kit was carb pending, never carb approved. It will never be street legal in California.

If you want boost and to be street legal get a super charger but you will be limited in HP by the reflashes from comptech because technically even just having Kpro in your car is illegal

yeah that.

i PM'd greddy a while back asking why the rsx greddy kit is still pending and the s2k kit is legal even with a slightly larger turbo than the rsx kit.

this is what i was emailed back

"Thank your for your interest in GReddy products.
Actually the RSX kits do not yet have a CARB EO number.
Unfortunately it isn't the size of the turbo that determines if it can meet the emission standards for a CARB EO. It also depends on the original standards the vehicle is certified as. TLEV, ULEV, LEV, etc. It can also be just where the original Catalytic converter is mounted in relation to the exhaust manifold, that determines how difficult it is to meet Cold Start standards. Once the vehicle is warmed up with any of our bolt-on kits, they will generally pass normal smog checks. There are many factors that play into getting a CARB EO number."
