    i already told you they give you a ref ticket, thats it.. i've heard you can just pay the ticket and be on your way.. but not positive.. they dont take your car, well i've never heard of that being done in CA.. if you're caught street racing yes, not for a swap

    yeah ref tickets double each time or something like that. my friend got one for cam gears ( he had them on a b20 ). but yeah it starts off at like 300 something, then jumps to 600 ish, then the 3rd time it ssomething in the 1000's. . . i think. . . but yeah, why not just drop in a gsr? or an ls? people dont question b18's in teggys. they do how ever question anything B in a civic. . .

    there are smog techs out in ca that do it, i know a few. . . but yeah thats besides the pt. i wouldnt worry about it to much, just dont be acting stupid and dont give the cops a reason to pull you over and your good. . . for the most part it seems like the cops stopped hasseling the honda heads, it seems to me there going after the whole rice thinge. I've actually had a cop tell me i had a nice clean car, when i went to report a break in at school. But yeah, the way i see it, dont give them a reason, there wont be a reason to pop your hood.

    I grew up in San Bernardino until I was about 22. I remember sitting on my front porch and not even being able to see the mountains due to the pinkish-orange cloud.

    I can see in places like so cal and such the importance of testing. I went from a population of a couple of million to about 40,000. The only thing around here polluting the air is the methane coming out of a cows arse lol.

    "The new Porsche 911 can go through a city like LA and the exhaust gas is actually cleaner than the air going in"

    SMOG is a statewide program...thats why you gotta get your car emissions checked.
