Funny. I was just thinking the same exact thing to myself as I was riding home tonight. My ass was SORE at first but now it feels normal.

All my bikes are illegal!!!

I believe a ticket for a modified exhaust is a "fix-it" ticket. Put the OEM pipe(s) on, get inspected, pay a fine - then go home and put the cool shit back on.

It can get expensive, but that's how I roll.

[Costs $300 USD every other year to smog my S2000 - because of titanium pipes and engine mods.]

Fuck it --- that's money well spent!

Finally got a little time this weekend to dig into the WRX.

Been wanting to tear out the Cali SMOG equipment since I got the bike. Just isn't right that we have to have more shit on the bike than anywhere else!

Started by stripping her naked.



You won't see this on non-Cali WRs. Here's the upper evap hose that goes from the tank to the canister.



The ugly lower evap hose is located right in front of the engine.



I ripped out the SMOG hoses & charcoal canister, then capped the fuel tank vent and the return port on the throttle body. Since Cali fuel tanks aren't vented, I'll need to install a vented fuel cap.



Next, I wanted to open up the air intake, which is severely restricted on this bike.

There are 2 rectangle openings to the airbox. In the larger opening, there is a plastic door that opens and closes at higher RPMs to seal it off (to meet noise regulations). At higher RPMs, the air is fed only through the smaller opening. A solenoid is located in the round hole on top of the airbox which opens and closes the intake door.



You can also see that the intake openings are TINY - even for a 250!



Well, fuck noise regulations if they're going to strangle my engine - I tore out the flapper door, piece by piece.

First, I taped a baggie onto the intake funnel to catch the carnage.



Then I hogged it out.



Some guys leave the solenoid hole open in the top of the airbox, but I think it will kill any venturi effect from the inlets. So, I cut a plastic plug, flushed it with the inside of the airbox,
and sealed it from the top with silicone adhesive.

Good idea with the bag to catch the falling pieces. How did you go about cutting out the flapper?

Looks a lot cleaner now after ripping out the Cali SMOG equipment, the Air induction system and the other emmisions crap.





(Also removed the helmet lock and some other stuff.)

The bad news is that I can't find 2 special screws and spacers that came with the new (vented) fuel cap. So, I had to uncap the fuel tank vent and run a vent hose until I find or replace the lost parts.







Removing the AIS makes a great difference. There is a pipe that injects cold air into the exhaust port to help the bike meet emmissions standards. But, injecting cold air makes the exhaust backfire all the time. After trashing the AIS, the bike runs smoother, and gives me tighter control over the revs.

Gonna anodize the AIS block-off plate next time I take stuff to the anodizing shop.
