    WTB Trilogy Supercharged Marauder San Gabriel Valley (or greater Los Angeles County)

    Looking for a Trilogy Supercharged Marauder in the San Gabriel Valley (or LA County or western US). I know this is a stretch, but I saw a couple people selling theirs but I missed out on both (1 step too late). PM/Message me.

    Things I am looking for:
    -no sun/moonroof
    -stock exhaust system is a must
    -Must have no rust on or underneath the car (frame/body must be clean, differential housing and rear axle housings usually have some light surface rust in southern California so that is not a big deal)
    -stock 3.55 gearing
    *basically would like to have a car that is mostly stock with the trilogy system on it since I have a lot of upgrade parts already*
    -would prefer a car that is not black, but may be open to one depending on location/condition
    -cold air intake is ok

    I am interested in the CA emissions situation as well. I know of at least three trilogy marauders in my area. One sold recently on ebay whereby I was just one step too late and the other's listing has since disappeared. I know the third will never be sold since it's the owner's daily. However, all three have been in CA for a long time (at least 14 years?) and all have passed emissions surprisingly.

    Trilogy did not get CARB certification...could be a gamble, just pointing it out

    This is correct. Actually I'm not sure any supercharger kit meets California CARB requirements without serious modification. You can check with ADTR whose Vortech SC kit is for sale, and they're based in California...

    But silver lining is... In 3 years these cars will be "antique" and able to be driven in most states despite Emission and Safety inspections

    From what my research has told me there are a couple of kits (from both Procharger and Vortech-including the ADTR kit) that are CARB compliant, but I just have a soft spot for roots-style blowers (love their look, sound, and low-end performance). Unfortunately for California, antique status is reserved for cars that are 25 years old or more and I believe we also need a special license plate too now for that status (not absolutely certain on this since the law changed again this year and now new gas cars will be outlawed in this state come 2035 so things might change again). If I can't find one in CA with the trilogy blower then I might just opt for a n/a one in SoCal.

    California has the strictest emissions standards in the country. When it comes to aftermarket modifications (such as blowers and cold air intakes), all need to be approved by the CARB (California Air Resources Board). Things such as long tube headers with high flow cats are also a no-go in this state, which is why the trilogy marauder currently on Bring-A-Trailer would instantly fail emissions here. As for the Trilogy supercharger kit, the company never got CARB's approval so technically speaking it should not be able to pass emissions here. However, three cars with it are able to pass emissions in this state (granted the one I have the carfax on has failed once, but passed it all other times). I would love to know how they did it.

    is it a possibility they turned off the 02s in the progam , thus no lite at all ever . does calif. stick the sniffer in the exhaust or just plug in and see no codes ?

    If the vehicle is 2000 or newer I do not believe they use sniffers in the tail pipe. However, a Trilogy Marauder would fail the moment they pop the hood (the visual portion of the test).

    Vortech is the only one that has EO numbers. Here is one of them.
