    I posted on here yesterday about building up my B18A. And I want to thank everybody who responded.

    But, I've heard some mixed things and want to clear the air.

    Everyone in CA knows what a PITA it is to mod your car. My current CRX w/ D16, JG throttle body, cams, and DC header and exhaust will pass but only after the timing is adjusted back to factory spec. Except for the throttle body its all CARB legal, and they tend to not notice the throttle body.

    What I really want to know is (and from people with first hand experience only):

    What is the most aggressive setup you ever got passed a smog ref in CA?

    (increased compression? lighter flywheel? cams? i/h/e? throttle body? ignition systems? etc...)
