    I have the same dilemma, When I get my cam Im going to get the TR224 115lsa. I was told the TR224 is the biggest cam that will pass smog. Also when looking for a cam you need a 114lsa or above. You already have the ls6 intake, I would just stick to that one.

    I heard you can pass with a 224 and good tune. On top of that get some true duals and a nice set of shorties..but yes emmissions sucks over here. My smog is due in december, im going to finish up my suspension till then and then i can start adding long tubes and maybe a healthy 228.

    Please, don't feel sorry for us. The smog sucks, but everything else more than makes up for it.

    smog problems

    Best thing to solve smog problems is to have a cat back in addition to cats, also I have used methanol (mixed with gas) in my car to pass smog, it worked wonders on my cars. Or- you find a mechanic shop that knows where an "honest" smog station is, it cost more but it will make your v-8 look like a i-4 if you know what I mean.

    Are you prepared to swap headers every couple of years to pass inspection???

    Doubt that! I like our change of seasons and no emission checks. We are about 700 foot sea level, too. Also, no smog here, no traffic jams, wide open spaces too!

    Anyway, to the OP, get a lid, some cat-back, maybe some new heads and cam, just don't change the exhaust to LT headers and/or ORY! The CA po-po will smash you. Don't waste your money on shorty headers.

    In California, the penalty for illegal smog operation is so severe that most shops will not take a chance.
