As long as the vehicle can pass a normal inspection, who cares what they have done, as long as it's safe on the road.

Re: Now this is STUPID. Cali laws suck

There were errors in that Video.

MSD for example is most certainly legal. The box comes with a sticker with the EO on it.

Yeah, it's messed up here man.

That car won't pass smog. And the penalties for that are actually quite heavy.

Does CA have mandatory yearly inspections? (We do, but I know some states don't.)

No.

We have a bi-annual SMOG inspection.

The stuff they were pointing out under the hood were all in violation of the "visual" inspection, modifications that directly affected the smog equip (for example, the little K&N replaces the PVC valve)...other than the errors I was talking about.

Re: Now this is STUPID. Cali laws suck

OK, almost everything they mention on there is Smog related. The CVC section mentioned in the video (27156b) is directly related to smog control. Nothing having to do with racing.

To be honest, I don't see anything wrong with the video... the laws are not the fault of the cops, and they are using the tools they have to ticket these assholes. If you don't like it, get the law changed (yea, a naive view, but there it is).

ALL of it is.

There is no law around suspension as long as the car's ride height is fine, and there's nothing hanging down. So the cop can act smart about "tuned" suspension all he wants...nothing there.

He got "profiled". Kinda asshole on the cop's part...but they are playing by the rules.

EDIT: Nitrous systems are also sometimes issued a CARB EO number to be a legal mod too.

We can impound your vehicle inspect it at our leisure and CHARGE you for storing it (of course the bill is likely due even if innocent) if you refuse to be searched without a warrant.

If you give the cop reason to have suspicion your car is illegal, yes.

Most states have similar stuff guys...

No, then you have a wrongful arrest suit, and you go buy a new S2000 with the funds won...but of course, you hate attorneys...so you might get screwed there.

Re: Now this is STUPID. Cali laws suck

I know this is an instructional vid, but what about your stock coil goes out and the aftermarket one is cheaper. Can you put in on there? according to the vid, No. It's BS IMO. Indiana may have it's faults but I love not having to have the cars inspected. I can see inspecting for broken lights, glass, tires, etc.... but that is rediculous.

I think their time should be spent more productively rather than harrassing motorist with mods to their rides.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.
