    Which parts store? I've seen an eclipse with a dsmtuners decal at o'reilly - that yours?

    I think my biggest problem is a smog guy that will smog with the FMIC. I know they're legal, but it seems like a lot of smog guys are afraid of any modified cars. I'm waiting on an air box to arrive, I just have an open K&N right now. After that, I'm pretty sure I'm okay.

    I've got the stock intake into a 14b with 3" pipes and a 24x12x4 intercooler. I've got a 2 1/2" stainless RRE down pipe, and a 3" after cat exhaust.

    I'm also on the lookout for a shop too. Recently took the talon out from non-op, but need to know if anyone knows a place in Sac so I don't have to drive all the way back to Vallejo just to smog.

    Mods are in my profile (minus the downpipe). I last had it smogged in 2012 and it passed the sniffer test no problem. PM me please!

    I didn't have any problems with a 14b on my 2G... it really depends on how knowledgable the smog guy is to DSMs, because if they don't know the car, a turbo looks like a turbo :)

    Flying under the radar really is the key. I went to smog a while back with my FMIC at a local shop and the guy freaked out about my shiny piping and blow off valve. Powder coated the stuff black went back to the same shop on a different day with a different guy and it got right through. Maybe it was the second guy not caring as much but ill tell you for sure with the black piping nothing jumps out at you when you pop the hood saying hey I'm not stock.

    There's a shop in Carmichael that has smogged my car pretty much with whatever I wanted to put on it as long as it wasn't visibly illegal (external wg, adjustable bovs, etc.). I had a 3.5 in ic core, most vacuum sources were capped off, shiny ass upper ic piping, Greddy intake, boost/af gauges, ecmlink, full 3in exhaust with 4in fartcan. I do have a stock turbo so idk if that made a difference but the dude seemed pretty cool about it all becuause he said none the "mods" actual change the performance of the car and if anything made it run worse since I have no way of tuning it (ddnt know I have dsmlink equipped ;)

    Anyway the smog tech there was very knowledgeable and knew what was acceptable and what wasn't even though most smog stations would turn you away for the simple mods on your car.
    It's right on the corner of Eastern Ave and Arden Way.
