My last Smog check guy was questioning my intake and said I can't pass with it but was nice enough to let me off the hook (after him dicking me around for a little bit and later asking if I worked for the government ) Although I felt that he was just tired since it was the end of the day, so you can try that tactic as well

guess in cali you just gotta get real good at swapping the stock manifolds in and out once a year
