I bought a 93 Si in great condition for stupid cheap. We're talking $650 cheap, and that's after the mechanic cleared it and said the motor was in great shape. It's a killer deal!
However, it's got this massive Spectre short ram intake on it. I just went to California smog check and the guy said it's illegal. Of course, I knew this, but I was just hoping it might pass.
Anyway, he said I needed the original intake or a CARB legal one in order to pass smog, and then I could just put the original Spectre back on after it passes. He called up a friend at a junkyard and they had a 93 Si intake that he would install for $180. However, since I don't plan on keeping the stock intake, I would like to save $180.
So is there anyone in SoCal who has their stock air intake system lying around and would let me rent/borrow it just to pass smog? I would only need it for a day, as my mechanic said it would clear no problem except for that intake.
Email me if you've got one! I would be eternally grateful!
