    Now you are in the territory of illegality.
    The emission systems start at the Mass Air Flow Sensor and end at the Cat Efficiency Sensor.
    Anything in between is controlled by smog laws.
    So unless it is exempted by an EO# or it is an item of non concern (as I listed above) It is illegal.

    Unless it throws a code I wouldn't worry about it. Getting your car smogged with aftermarket parts is easy.

    It's the inspection due to a citation that you have to worry about it

    Yes, you can always take your chances and hope the Smog Tech does not see/care.
    I would suggest however, that you select a test station that offers, "Pass or Retest Free".
    This type of test station is more likely to overlook something to avoid the free retest.
    If you do get caught you can fix the infraction and then have it tested again.

    Maybe this will help as well.

    One could argue that the Silicone Intake Hose, Crossover Pipe, or Charge Pipes were replacements for durability.
    See info below from the same reference guide.


    Hose(s) - Minor configuration changes are acceptable. Universal replacement hose in place of preformed hose, etc. do not require an EO#


    CARB Definitions of Aftermarket Parts

    “Replacement Part” means any aftermarket part intended to replace an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) emissions-related part and which is functionally identical to the original equipment part in all respects which in any way affect emissions (including durability) or a consolidated part. These parts are typically advertised for street use on emission controlled vehicles.

    California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 13 § 1900 (b) (20)

    Some examples: Replacement air filter elements, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor caps, chromed valve covers, replacement EGR valves, and replacement carburetors. (Note: A replacement EGR valve or carburetor must be specified as replacement, by the part manufacturer, for the vehicle on which it is installed).



    Remember however, that it is all up to the interpretation of the Smog Inspector but I think we could win this one.
    Understand as well that emission hoses like PCV must use proper replacement hoses and they are marked.
