California Issues 😒

Hey guys, Does anyone know if you get a State Ref ticket in California do I need to flash stock tune after I make it stock and go in or can I just go in with full stock exhaust and engine but with a custom engine tune ?

Depends on if they are going to scan for readiness codes and or do a sniff test on the tail pipes.

As long as all of the drive cycle tests are complete and no codes are bypassed the ECM side should be fine.

No more CHP/Peace officer sign-off?

Or is the ticket for modified exhaust with referee inspection?

As long as none of the monitors are turned off, you will pass even tuned.

most of those places will have no idea what a flex fuel sensor is much less what it does.

Wait, so you have no cats and the tune has the CEL turned off? If so, you definitely won’t pass smog. Need to have the cats back on and tuner turn back on all O2 monitors to pass.
