    @LTDCV351 Thank you for the link.

    @gpfarrell Yes I have seen the one on BAT, however it has long tube headers with the high flow cats. Three cars in this state have passed smog with a Trilogy but none would ever pass with those exhaust modifications (removing the stock style cats is an instant fail in CA).

    Does anyone know if you can talk to autotrader to get the contact information of a person whose listing expired? I have the VIN, license plate, and CarFax of one of the cars I wanted to buy and the listing just expired not that long ago.

    Wow, it sold for $21,500 and only had like 10,000 miles? It would have worth sourcing a stock exhaust system to pass the test!
    Trilogy #146!!! Self-Installed with a little help!

    I saw that as well. A Trilogy Marauder with 16K miles at $21.5K is a great deal, IMHO. Also has 4.10s and SW headers. Swap out the custom COP covers, remove the fake caliper covers, and call it a day. Couldn’t buy a low mileage Marauder and install a s/c’er for that price.

    @gpfarrell and @z man- I was tempted to put in a bid but I was waiting for the trilogy owner local to me to respond first. Nonetheless, to transport that car to my location and to redo the exhaust to make it california legal it would be at least another four grand plus on top of the auction price (whatever it will end up at if I entered the bidding). I was ultimately able to get through to the local trilogy owner (have to thank autotrader for working with me on this one) but found out that he ultimately decided to keep it. If I had emailed him first instead of looking at the carfax I could have gotten a CA smogged trilogy for less than thirteen grand. Granted it had a lot of miles on it but I was planning to refurbish it anyways. Oh wells. Will update main page soon with what I am looking for now.

    This his is correct, as I have done much research, and begged ADTR to make the legal version for CA.

    Further, bringing an "out of state" car into California, requires a little more work, and unfortunately a little more scrutiny on the car itself (depending on your county). Doesn't mean it can't be done... But is a risk. While you can always find a shop that may look the other way after opening hood, they sometimes sell thier business or "your guy" moves on, and then what?

    My regular place sold, and honest to gosh, my approved CAI was rejected (I hate all underhood stickers) as I keep my Carb sticker in envelope in glove box. A$$-bite demanded I "stick the CARB Sticker on unit in plain site," so I asked for a break, backed car out, and re-installed stock CAI in parking lot just to pass smog.

    Again, just sharing, as the smog check is every two years.

    @1Marauder
    Yeah, that is pretty much how the people around me were able to have theirs in California. At this point, I am probably just going to opt for a N/A marauder (preferably not black). I will either create a new thread or just revise this one soon.
