+1...another idea would be to implement a Volant
CAI, which is a completely enclosed CAI similar to the stock setup. No one would know what they were looking at if they popped the hood. I do not know what they do in Cali, but here in Louisiana, they do not pop the hood. It seems to me that you might be able to get away with long tube headers, with catted mid-pipes.
I know that are some high performance goats residing in Cali, you might want to find one or two of these guys/gals and ask them what they are doing to get around the emissions rules and regulations.
I have an Internet buddy, Will, who just had a bunch of work done on his GTO to the tune of 484 rwhp / 458 rwtq. Currently he is in Kentucky, but resides in Louisiana. If I recall our conversations correctly, he is moving to Calfornia. I will shoot him an email and inquire whether or not he has given the subject of emissions any consideration (I just sent Will email...and I will let you know what his response is).
