    Plus Ford was dragging their feet for releasing tune codes for the 17 ECU.

    So if they want to EO a separate piece they have to pay 10k and CARB requires the fee each year of sale.
    I have been around and involved in trying to get stuff legal with CARB in the past.

    Seems like people can get around that if E0's are transferable and go with the part when the owner of the part sells. People sell used intakes left and right. So if someone were to get a MP215 today all someone in CA needs to pass smog certification is the EO# from 2014-16?

    Oh you could buy a setup like anintake used with the EO and the sticker. It will be fine for 98% of the smog techs out there. Its those last 2%bookworms and referees who might cry foul based on the car being a non EO year. Problem with an MP215 is its a locked down tune. Its married to your ECU only. Not sure if its even transferrable. I would not be surprised if the state forced Mountune to do that.
    Now if one bought a car from 2016 second hand with the MP215 installed they are golden when it comes to smogs.
    CARB is a wacky organization.

    I'm not worried about smog as much as random inspections. I've been asked to pop my hood twice. I could have said no, but I complied and both times got out of a ticket. My one official inspection was pretty intense, they even poked around the turbo. Not sure even a hybrid would have passed that.

    CARB legal intake (or pass visual) for 2014

    Safest bet is to look OE, otherwise make sure you have the appropriate stickers and documents. Even then the cop could site you to take the car into a state ref to prove it and have them approve it. Once you have a document from the state ref you can then use it as proof in the future if you have to pop your hood.

    Carb stickers are Lifesavers. I ran them on my supercharged tundra and they didn't even look up the numbers. Also being polite to officers always helps
