    I haven't had to smog it yet, but there's no reason to think they'd pick up the tune & it really wouldn't matter anyways. As long as it passes emissions, it will be fine. Seeing your various posts, I think you're a little too worried about this.

    My prior car, a 2004 Subaru WRX, had a custom exhaust, a tune & a panel filter in the stock airbox. It ALWAYS passed smog.

    Hey Moto-x,

    was reading an older post and you mentioned not only did you have a modified exaust (axle back) but did the OV tune on a 2.5 AND live in California.

    Just wondering if you have had any issues passing smog with that setup (especially the tune). I would think they could tell you don't have an OEM ECU and I would think that would be instant grounds for FAIL!
