Another one, this time add the ref sign off on it.

Tint
Front plate
Air filter

So, the sticker on the back of the ticket can be pulled off. I dont know if I should but yeah. I have the stock air box but if I can avoid taking off this filter and putting it back on, it would be better.

Does anyone know any COOL cops that will sign off tint and a front plate? Can I TBD the ref? Or pay the fine?

I say use zip ties to just put it on for the "inspection" and then take it off...or double side tape that shit to your front bumper...

that's what I did last time and it worked fine...the cop just looked at it, and then proceeded to ask me whether it was the front or back...LOL I told him the back it was and then he went to the back, looked at it and signed it off...it was funny as hell...drove out of the lot, drove a block and then took it off...then drove off :)

since ur car aint crazy modded, just turn it stock and go see the ref. the fine for 27156(b) ranges from 400-800 bucks. I had to pay for it two or three times already cause turning my car back to stock was out of the question

Well it is easy to do it, but a hassle. Who wants to change all that crap out? What about the tint? Front plate I can handle... I will zip tie it like last time.

Yeah... Unfortunately. The $7500 I wasted on that + the $5000 I was upside down on the trade in could have been added to the $10000 I put on the Evo. That would have been $20k.

Ive been thinking to myself... Why didnt I just say I already have a ticket for tint and front plate and it will be fixed shortly. I wonder if he would have believed me. I did it before and the CHP was cool about it.

^ No shit.

Cop: What is that device under your stereo?
Me: It is a turbo timer. It lets the turbo cool down to the amount of time I set it to.
Cop: Is that factory?
Me: No, but it doesn't increase or decrease performance. It's just a timer.
Cop: Are your gauges factory?
Me: No, they are aftermarket, but this panel is factory. These gauges are for show.
Cop: Can you pop your hood?
*Pop the hood, thinking he would make me get out and do it. He pops it*
Cop: Where is your CARB sticker for this air filter?
Me: I didn't know you had to have one for the air filter itself. I was under the impression from SEMA that when you have an aftermarket intake system, it is illegal.
Cop: Explains how stock air box works (I know mother fucker, I drive an Evo).
Me: Ok.
Cop then drops my hood (DICK!)

Comes back and says I have to go to the ref. I mean for a stupid fuckin filter. I am going to throw the stock air box back on and switch out my downpipe and stock cat and leave my catback exhaust on there.

When you go to ref, does he make sure that your car is stock? Or that it passes smog?
