Greddy turbo kit for RSX is not CARB exempted. It is "pending" which means the California Air Resources Board has not yet granted an E.O. #, therefore it is currently illegal to install on a street driven vehicle within the state.blacK20 said:greddy is carb legal, i think
dont quote me
check their site
But they do. Please see the thread that is running right now about the guy who was pulled over and issued a state referee ticket. I have better things to spend extra money on, and I certainly don't want to hand it to the state bureaucracy.k20aSwap said:I know there are boosted cars in cali and im sure they dont have these problems.

Don't get caught? If you keep the car for 4 years here in CA, you are required to have a smog test to register your car. When this happens, you have a dilemna, and a few decisions to make. If you sell the car, an emissions test of the vehicle is required before it can be registered to the new owner. What most people do not realize: it is the SELLER's responsibility to ensure that the car will pass. Go to www.smogcheck.ca.gov for the facts.
So I would only have to take it off for smog checks? What if I get pulled over? I will assume im screwed.username03 said:exactly right about the decisions part.
i have a few friends that have boosted civics and audis, but of course they know people and pay them off but of course i wont say any names :laughing:
a) have to know people'
b) or are willing to take your non-legal modifications off every time you go to the smog station
See my post above with the picture of the CARB sticker that came with my JRSC Street Kit.k20aSwap said:theres gotta be a way to get by all this crap.
Read up on BOV's. Don't take that as a slight or insult, since it was not intended to be.k20aSwap said:Basically the reason I would rather go with turbo than sc is super chargers dont have bov....do they?
For a Californian, that is a rational line of thought. A lot cheaper, too, should you get cited for an illegal turbo.k20aSwap said:yeah and in light of this information i am highly considering the JRSC. Not only does it give fairly good power gains but the main bonus is that it is legal, and because I am in cali thats really what i need. Even though the sc doesnt have all the cool sounds and gauges and what not its more practical where I live.
