    I just got my stang smogged about twenty minutes ago and passed. Not a big surprise but the guy was being a dick and bitching about not having CARB #'s for my CAI and how im missing the little black air restrictor piece that goes into the fender (from the air box on a factory intake). what makes a car fail smog? besides offroad pipes?

    in california you have to have a CARB # on your intake....but pretty much elsewhere in the US you dont have to.

    not burning off the fuel emissions enough is what will fail you i guess. You guys have it rough in cali with that insane visual inspection...NJ adopted the same smog/emission standards as Cali but thankfully not the super stringent visual where they will actually check CAI's etc.

    Cali boys have it harder for sure, tough to find cams that will pass and finding parts that are CARB certified can be a bitch...If i lived in Cali i would buy a Saleen or Roush that has alot of the stuff done aleady and is legal. Most Superchargers are Carb legal also so you can still make it fast.

    probably a state inspection facility not a shop. We have State run inspection here thats free or you can go to a authorised shop and pay.

    Tint on the rear in NJ is legal and so is a catback/mufflers...unless they are too loud then they will measure the decibels.
