    no it won't pass visual, so if you want to stay smog legal you'll have to fork out the 540 for the ls-6 from slp, they are really hard to find used, that or wait for the weiand and get one with the egr. Get headers with the air and egr provisions you'll feel the power more than you would with the intake.
