Question by homeless_boy2000: aftermarket cat converter will not pass smog in California?
I heard that if i install an aftermarket cat converter on my car, it will not pass the smog test in California. Is that true?
because my stock cat converter went out, and i dont wanna pay the dealer $ 400 to get an OEM one installed, while i can get an aftermarket one for $ 40 and install it myself.

as long as you get a california aftermarket converter it will pass, they usually cost more but it will still be less than 400.00, they might be hard to find in cali, if so, try allied exhaust in arizona and they can ship it to you, usually they are around 150 bucks for a universal
