wait a minute, then if Scion is offering these parts as CARB and/or 50 state legal, should you be able to get ur money back from them :confused: It's basically false advertisment, yes? Good thing I held on to the stock air box for next year. By the way, is it the visual he didnt get past?

well if you bought your intake or the dc exhaust that comes with the rs its legal cuz it has the trd carb from toyota on it

yeah, but did he not pass because of the visual of everything? Thats the real question ;) Cuz if you get the MMW header, the OEM header pipe cover goes right back on :D As for intake, I can slap the ol one back on for acouple of days, so Im not worried about that one :cool:

Your right they will fail you on the visual part of it before they even hook it up to run any test! Cali sucks for smog laws! Oh well thats life! :mad:

well the thing is that if they look at your car and they see mods they will fail you thats it they dont care if theres a 50 state legal carb they only will do the test only if it has the toyota carb thats it

Yup had that happen 2 times at 2 different places!! I showed the guy all the proper things needed to prove it was 50 state smog legal and he still wasnt having it!! Just how it goes sometimes!! Just make sure you have all your stock pieces and throw em on before you get your smog test!

there is no toyota carb unless it is a trd supercharger kit.


if there is a carb placard it is legal. what's the point of carb placards if theyre useless? i'm sure lil cheap hole in the wall smog places won't care if this law that doesnt maker any sense at all.

My prob is that I wanna run a turbo set-up, and there are 50-state legal set ups for the xB. I just think that guy wanted to see an extra $50 thrown at him. Whats funny is, bring a tundra in w/ a SC, and you somehow pass. Answer that one :mad:
